Woodland Themed 275th Birthday


This production wanted to bust corporate entertaining formats by mashing an edgy theatrical experience with a once in a life-time party. However, the triple challenge was to make it run smoothly, safely and successfully.   Rebekah Hanbury, Wonder Works Production Manager commented, “Flavourology wanted our support to guarantee delivery of this highly prestigious event. During pre-production we could offer our CAD capabilities to model guest flows and capacity thresholds through various venue spaces as well as “hands-on” operational production expertise on anything from health & safety to supporting the contractors and delivering the build on-time.”


Freshfields hosted their woodland glade themed birthday party at Bankside Vaults. The staff and their guests were enthralled with the experience. As walking into the space their senses were catapulted into overdrive through a euphony of woodland sounds, memorable forest smells, and visually stunning trees and plants including giant toadstools. Badgers and nymphs circulated telling stories, a ‘real’ camp fire featured, and bar staff served woodland themed cocktails and food. One of the Freshfields partners described it perfectly… “it was like living in Narnia for the evening”.


Selina Donald, Flavourology’s Executive Producer comments, “Flavourology were delighted to be working with Wonder Works. Given Freshfields legal line of business it was essential every single aspect of the event operation ran like clockwork.  Thankfully it did, and that in part was down to Wonder Works expertise in meticulously planning and support in delivering this incredible 275th birthday party”.


Freshfields were similarly happy and commented, “The event has received fantastic feedback from across the firm!”
