We are industry leaders in designing ceremonies and events – from shopping centre openings and street carnivals to stadium-sized events across the UK and internationally. We’ve worked on ceremonies for FIFA World Cup 2009, the London Paralympic Closing Ceremony and Team GB Parade in 2012, WOMAD Festival and more.

From vibrant bespoke costumes and rivers of silk, to moving mechanical structures and gigantic puppets, our designs seek to inspire and amaze audiences through the power of spectacle, and to help transform the public realm.

The design studio develops the work of artists into a range of creatively-inspired, commercial products. The ‘White Horses’ Collection by Ali Pretty was our first range to be developed and is on sale at request.

We own a unique collection of show-stopping pieces which are available to hire. From costumes, flags and banners to giant puppets and structures, our designs can be the centrepiece of any event.
