Essence Summer Social

corporate event


To plan and deliver a festival themed summer party for 400 members of staff. Top of our client’s wish list was an uber cool London venue, great music and DJ’s and fantastic food..


We had the perfect venue in mind. Studio338, with its cool Ibiza vibes, amazing outdoor terrace and South-East London location. It was the blank canvas we needed to create an unbelievable festival style party in the heart of London.

We set about transforming the iconic London venue into a colourful, fun-packed, glitter-filled, festival-style summer party with funky music, delicious street food, rainbow balloons, bubble artists and dancing unicorns (not real ones – thought we best point that out).

With interactive games and giant inflatables getting guests involved, flower crowns and glitter makeup stalls making sure everyone was festival ready and endless hours of entertainment to be had at the photo and Karaoke booths – there was never a dull moment!

And the fun didn’t stop there – we organised live DJ sets from DJ Junior and Ellie Sax and performances from top London steel band. All wrapped up in brightly coloured balloon installations, rainbow bunting and festival style signage.

When it all got too much, guests could kick back and relax in a retro deck chair and enjoy the amazing array of delicious street food from one of the many food trucks we brought in.


The client was very happy with the end result and it ticked all there boxes and more. Essence staff suggested that this event was the best social the company has ever had.

“Our business has had summer and Christmas socials since it formed and all the feedback we've had is this was the best party this agency has ever had.I would defiantly recommend hiring the Abbie&me team for your next event.”
