• Henley Festival – 2017

    New installation at Henley Festival for Invesco Perpetual – July 2017


    Not long now until we can unveil our new installation at Henley Festival on behalf of Invesco Perpetual.  The brief was to create an area for attendees to this upmarket music and arts festival that would provide some additional brand presence and engagement with the audience.  The Festivals theme of ‘Day to Night’ provided the inspiration for us to look at a seated garden that magically transforms as the night falls.  With the Pet Shop Boys and Chaka Khan and Jess Glynne all playing this year there will certainly be an eclectic crowd to please across the five days of the event.  We look forward to revealing our designs for the seated garden in the coming weeks.

    Serving Up A Treat At Barclays Ball Kids

    Barclays Ball Kids is now in its fourth year and 2013 is set to be another exciting chance for kids up and down the UK to claim their place as a ball boy or ball girl at the end of season spectacle at The O2, London – the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.


    Nowhere else have 12-16 year olds got the opportunity to be part of such an event. The top eight male tennis players in the world, indoors, in London, in front of up to a quarter of a million spectators, with flashing light shows, pumping music and celebrities watching on from every angle. This is the must have seat for 2013. And Barclays Ball Kids is an initiative that’s open to everyone between the ages of 12-16 across the whole of the UK. It’s not just for London. It’s not just for kids who enjoy tennis. It’s for children that are willing to show they’ve got what it takes to be the best in the world. With the huge achievements of Andy Murray in 2012 winning the Olympic title and being crowned US Open champion, as well as ending the year at no.3 in the world, now is the time to create some more excitement about the game. In 2012, nearly 2,000 kids took part in the Barclays Ball Kids trials and just 100 made it through to the final trial in London under the watchful eye of Greg Rusedski. From this, a final squad of thirty was chosen for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals and to assume the coveted title of a Barclays Ball Kid.
