While continuing to grow a reputation for organising world class events in the private sector, Lillingston is now forging ahead delivering high quality event and hospitality services to both corporate and private clients from its offices in Portobello Road, west London.
Director Fleur Cooper says the company is able to offer a more versatile and offbeat approach to events while maintaining a very high level of finesse and quality. They like to call it the ‘Lillingston stardust’, she explains.
“The luxury sector is perfect for us because we’re all about creating very high level bespoke events that exude the sort of exquisite quality that reflects the brand we’re working with,” she said.
Her team recently turned four car parking spaces in Mount Street, Mayfair, into an English garden for luxury watchmaker Parmigiani and previously projected huge moving images of internal watch workings on to the side of a building to launch a new watch brand for Harry Winston.
“To open Parmigiani’s new store in Mayfair we wanted to make a big, bold statement so we created a beautiful English garden right outside in a busy street, complete with green hedges, trees and a foot-tapping jazz band,” said Fleur. “It certainly brought Mount Street to life!”
Their creative team has arranged dinners in palaces and weekends at private stately homes all over the world, as well as weddings on romantic Italian cliff tops, banquets for film sets and parties in the depths of the desert. Their commitment to excellence has won the company a reputation for producing fantastic events with an emphasis on discretion, personal service, attention to detail and creative flair.
For one of their most high profile clients, the team recently transformed a dull corporate box at Newmarket into a beautiful classical and elegant Lillingston dining room for a day at the races.
Impressive bronzes and bespoke art as well as an array of stunning antiques contributed to a traditional yet chic room for guests to dine and enjoy afternoon tea. Bespoke touches such as fine detailed leather for the race cards and personalised menus were just two examples of their attention to detail.
It’s not all flowers and frills though – among its other specialised services Lillingston is now working with ex-special forces operatives on a high octane corporate away day featuring car and boat chases, hostage-taking and a gun battle – not for the faint-hearted!
