Whether you’re looking for a company fun day, a black tie dinner, a conference, award ceremony or product launch, we can design your event around a suitable and memorable theme.
SN2R will work closely with you to ensure we bring your vision to life. We can also provide decorations, table-centres, styling, theming, branding, design and concept, party decorations, props, furniture hire and event prop hire.
Whatever the size, theme or venue we have lots of ideas to wow your guests. Below are some some examples of the types of themed events we have done.
Corporate Awards Evening
We were challenged by our PR client Cirkle - www.cirkle.com with a tight budget to supply a memorable Awards Evening at The Internet Advertising Bureau.
See a YouTube video clip of the event...
Look-a-like 'Patsy' from Absolutely Fabulous hosted the Awards Ceremony - while guests enjoyed the theatrical transformation with our Oscar Statues and red entrance carpet.
Afterwards the client said "The night went really well, 'Patsy' was incredible and just made the event and the props looked fab. Thank you for all your help."
Venetian Masked Ball Party Theme
Guests arrived at a magically lit and richly coloured venue, and were greeted by royal doormen. Champagne and canapès were served to the accompaniment of a String Quartet and Venetian entertainers.
Dinner was announced by the dimming of lights and trumpeters. Following a sumptuous meal, the evening concluded with dancing to a live band until the early hours.
Around The World
SN2R were commissioned to produce an Around the World themed party for Grosvenor.
Grosvenor's head office reception area was transformed into a map of the globe, made from 'astro turf' set in a 'sea' of blue pebbles. The Duke of Westminster and stilt walking ‘swans’ welcomed and greeted guests. Waiting staff dressed in traditional costumes relating to their international office locations served canapes.
Signposting directed guests around the World to various locations including:
Chinatown Hong Kong: Featuring a Chinese entrance piece and lots of overhead red Chinese lanterns. Guests sampled dim sum and were entertained by an origamist and a Chinese calligrapher.
Australian grotto: a rock cave formation under which we revealed Panning for Gold with dry ice and lights of green and red.
Canadian Ice House where a Canadian seal doubled up as a drinks luge.
Washington DC bandstand: Guests stood on the 'lawn' and listened to a 1920's Jazz Trio resplendent in stripe blazers.
Parisian left Riverbank: visiting a smaller version of famous Parisian landmarks with a backdrop for the caricaturist.
English Regatta party: Using Henley backdrops, guests enjoyed strawberries and cream and Pimms.
Murder comedy games are perfect for company or department away days, as the finalé to a team building activity day or conference, for entertaining clients and even for product launches.
A good murder mystery should be:
- Entertaining - Our carefully crafted scripts and experienced actors guarantee that.
- Solvable - Teams can be very competitive. It is only fair their detective work be rewarded.
- Interactive - Audience participation and tailored references really bring it alive.
Guests were invited to "The Snow is Falling and the Slopes are Calling" in giant teepees in local woods. Dress code was strictly Après Ski!
Guests were welcomed into the giant teepees decorated with reindeer skins, where they were served hot gluhwein and entertained over an open fire by a fabulous close-up magician.
These unique teepees can be located just about anywhere and are equipped with furniture, lighting, kitchen marquees and lavatories. They are finished to the highest specification and have been designed to be completely flexible for any event.
Back to School
We create a school gates entrance with signage "School Leavers Reunion Ball". Inside is a version of a sixth form common room - games area / bar / cafeteria / work space. In the games area we have pool, table football, air hockey, pinball and darts. Plus, on the floor we have hopscotch and other game markings. The walls have 80's posters and several chalkboard blackboards. The bar is serving 'milk bottle' cocktails.
During the evening actors take the parts of characters from school. The dining hall is decorated with old school historical notice boards, with lists of head boys, head girls, prefects, oxford entrants etc.
After the prize giving including those for Best Dressed and Best Behaved, the school disco kicks in and the dance floor will be filled until the early hours!
Guests arrive at the faded elegance of an old Indian Maharaja's palace, with the smell of incense and spices heavy in the air. Inside, a market is in full swing. Guests can sample the food vendor's wares, look at the market traders delicacies, have their fortune told by the swami or get a henna tattoo.
Various street performers entertain to a background of Indian music. In the palace ruins, where free-standing tented ceilings of exotic fabrics have been set up, tables are dressed with cotton Indian prints and ornate lanterns. Cushioned seating areas with rugs and low tables allow guests to relax.
Dancers and musicians will entertain during dinner but beware the fakir, who will pass around your table. His hand is faster than your eye!
Afterwards, you get the chance to work off some of that delicious food as the DJ mixes Eastern and Western music.
Chinese New Year Party
The venue is turned into the entrance to Chan's Chinese Theatre. Meet and greet characters dressed in traditional Chinese Costumes entertain.
A 10-person Chinese Theatre Company roll one act into another, culminating with the dragon appearing from underneath the stage in a puff of dry ice.
The skills include flag martial arts / Chinese magic / tumbling / acrobatics / juggling / balancing / rolling with candles / lion and dragon dances.
When the dragon dance reaches its climax a red confetti drop explodes. This will signal the end of the food and Chinese entertainment being replaced by the DJ. Entertainers include Calligraphers / Caricaturists / Silhouette cutting / Fortune teller / Chinese masseur.
Fun Fair Party
Guests are greeted by two Stilt Walking Twirly Wirlys and to the sights and sounds of funfair activities with bright and flashing lights. Stalls can include traditional fairground games: Coconut Shy, Candy Floss and Popcorn, Cork Rifle Shooting Range, Darts, Can Can Stall, Test Your Strength, Hook a Duck, Hoopla Stall, Roll Downs, Splat The Rat.
The fun continues with the highly skilled and experienced performers who build the atmosphere to a tremendous climax with Slap & Tickle supplying the comedy, with juggling and club passing, balloon modeling, unicycling, stilt walking and fire eating.
Madame Zena (Fortune Telling Artist Tarot/Palmistry and Spell Weaving) entices guests to step into her booth to hear about their “Business and Love predictions for the following year”. After dinner, guests can enjoy having either a Henna or *Temporary Tattoo created on their hand or arm. Later, one of your own guests can participate in the comedy duo’s Walk of Death!
Halloween Party Theme
As guests enter the slightly unnerving and spooky dark room, they are met by something very strange indeed. A creature, neither fact nor fiction, hanging inverted and sleeping but then lunges at you and stalks you as his prey! You will need a drink- a ‘Bloody Mary’ perhaps after your meeting with Baron Von Grindle.
Guests can enjoy Tarot Card Reading, Palmistry and Crystal Ball gazing from the glamorous spell weavers during the night. Later they can participate on a number of interactive Halloween games.
- Ten pin bowling with a difference.
- The touchy feely ‘Body parts’ guessing game.
- Horror Tic-tac-toe.
- Find the key to the chains.
- Horror Scrabble.
- Splat the Rat and Apple Bobbing.
- Catch a Bat.
- Knock the Skull Off (Coconut shy)
Guests are greeted by an excited group of paparazzi taking shots of the partygoers as they enter. Look-alike Hollywood stars entertain guests as they arrive.
After dinner there will be a short break for The Ceremony - more information will be revealed on the night! Using the look-alikes we will arrange the presentation of the nominations/winners. Winners can make their 'acceptance speech' and have their photograph taken with their own Gold statue.
Post dinner entertainment can include:
- Casino Royale - with full size professional Roulette, Blackjack and Wheel of Fortune
- Tara Croft - DVD Quick Draw
- Hollywood Instant Imaging - Guests will be transformed into their favourite Hollywood star. Each guest takes away an A5 photograph in a frame showing their new movie look.
James Bond Party
SN2R Ltd will recreate the style and the sophistication of Bond films and promise an action-packed party. All this combined with the intrigue and excitement of the Secret Service and world of espionage.
"I would just like to say how brilliant our party was. Everyone had a fantastic time and really loved the James Bond theme - you were spot on when you said that it would suit our company."

Close-up magicians will greet your guests with their breathtaking sleight of hand magic. They are always a tremendous ice-breaker and perform usually at the drinks reception then over the meal. Later the Cabaret can be either an illusionist performing a fast paced series of seemingly impossible feats of magic, and/or a mind reader who will entrance you and astound you.

Pirates of the Caribbean
On arrival at the party, lookalike Captain Jack Sparrow greets guests as "The Jolly Rodgers" duo play hornpipes and sing songs of the sea, including such classics as 'The Drunken Sailor'.
So batten down the hatches, swill your grog and get ready for a broadside of Buccaneer banter!
This night is complete with a roving band of pirates who take over the party and involve your guests in activities including walking the plank and sword fights. The event features a trio of dancing wenches and a medicine man magician. The party is complete with pirate decor, swashbucklers' raid, panning for gold game, limbo competition and a Disco until the early hours.
Pull on yer jeans and cowboy boots, hitch yer horse to the rail and swing yer partner down to "Rosa's Cantina" where the chilli's hot and the beer is cold!
Every guest will be handed a Straw Cowboy Hat and a bottle of beer when they arrive and can participate in the following:

Here your venue is stunningly dressed with white linings, slash snow curtains and transparent icicle fringing, and snow falling gently on to the forest of pine-scented trees.
Guests are greeted by ice sprites and stilt-walking ice creatures, and drinks are served from an ice bar with glasses made of ice. For dinner, guests emerge into a sea of low ice mist which fills the whole floor of the dining area. Tables and chairs swathed in white, resemble icebergs on the sea.
The striking feature is the Ice Palace itself - set under a starlit sky, a multi-turreted confection dripping with the weight of a thousand icicles and lit in ice blue.
A quartet dressed as ice maidens entertain over dinner. Podium Artists entertain and when guests are seated, the room lights dim and the focus is on the spectacular Ice Palace which changes colour. Heralded by a pyrotechnic burst, the Ice Queen emerges to welcomes guests.
The Gaftas Party
We had great fun when we were challenged to create a fabulous 60th Birthday Party with a Gaftas Theme - a take off of the annual Baftas it saw guests arriving onto a red carpet, digital paparazzi, Sharon Osbourne and Ricky Gervais look-alikes and a surprise awards ceremony - all created in a front garden!
