Jim and Angus have been friends since boyhood and decided to celebrate their 50th birthdays in style by inviting 300 or so of their closest friends to an upmarket bash in a field! Of course, the star attraction was the black DarkStar – the instant night-club, the hub of the party.
Held in a field on the Berkshire/Hampshire border and surrounded by beautiful countryside, the guests were provided with all the comforts of home – a barbeque, a bar, posh loos and, most importantly, a night club in the shape of the DarkStar! Because power points are few and far between in fields, we also provided the generators to power this extravaganza.
As darkness fell, the summer night was lit up by the light streaming from the DarkStar. The party went on into the wee small hours and the light and sound systems provided by DarkStar made sure that everyone had the opportunity to show off their dance moves whether they deserved to be seen or not! Around the tent, utility lighting ensured that any trips to the loos were uneventful and safe.
As it was held on a working farm, it was important that disruption was kept to a minimum. The DarkStar was installed in 2 hours and de-rigged in the same time, the field was undamaged and the day-to-day working of the farm carried on unhindered. No cows were harmed (or even shooed away) in the making of this event. We always make sure that we leave the site clean and tidy and, in this case, full of rabbits! Perhaps not the most usual 50th, but certainly lots of fun!
The proof of a good pudding is in the eating. The proof of a DarkStar party can be seen in the video above…
