As we head into Autumn it’s time to say goodbye to the festivals season. Looking back at our summer operating the VIP bars at some of the country’s top boutique festivals has been a fun reminder of the diverse Escapades we’ve been on this summer!
Founded in 2003 our key focus here at Escapades has always been premium events, intimate and large scale parties, luxury weddings and a whole lot of glitz and glamour. Taking that decade of VIP experience into Festivals this year has meant we can deliver all the little details, from great drinks and tip-top service to quirky cocktails and cool garnishes.
We started the summer at Geronimo, Cheshire’s family festival taking place over three days. We had some great weather and enjoyed a weekend pouring local beers and cider, some cute summer cocktails and plenty of softs for the kids! Lots of fun and highly recommended to folks wanting to rekindle their love of festivals and introduce their little ones to some live music and authentic festival vibes.
The sold out Love Box in July was a great dial-up into a full blown festival, in the heart of Victoria Park, London our team had an awesome time delivering the VIP bar service to an electric crowd. Warmed us up nicely for the summer! Check it out for 2018.
Next was Kendal Calling with a nice line-up over 4 days, great location in the Lake District and a real mix of gritty festival vibes with a family friendly twist. A VIP bar near the lake meant our team could create a fun and relaxed sanctuary just around the bend and they did a great job with some quirky drinks like “Freaks for the weekend” and “Ain’t no sunshine” with edible sunflower garnish.
Last up in midsummer was the fabulous Wilderness Festival with the even more fabulous and iconic Grace Jones headlining. Our biggest festival operation this summer meant the A team were in action all weekend over multiple bars. A huge event, great vibes and memorable moments with some excellent customers. Not to be missed in 2018!
So onwards we go to 2018 and excited to get creative with some fresh drinks and themes for a new year, vibrant cocktails, fun teams and the full cocktail bar kit-caboodle as usual. See you next summer!
