A Fully Immersive Star Wars Party
… take a look at how it was pulled together.
Armed with the client’s brief for a fully immersive Star Wars themed party experience and with knowledge of the films and a little help from google to fill in the gaps, we created a fully themed Star Wars event, wowing guests with a recreation of the famous Cantina bar including a live Cantina Band of ‘Aliens’… no mean feat!
It didn’t take us long to choose the venue – where else than Movies at Madame Tussauds with its very own dedicated Star Wars area!
The Guest Journey
Upon arrival, a black carpet was laid out and the iconic John Williams sound track was playing. Guests were then transported through 400 years of London’s history on the magical Spirit of London Ride before being welcomed into ‘Film’ with a chilled glass of bubbly and a selection of delicious canapés. The Glitz and Glam of Madame Tussauds then continued as guests were led down to the Grand ballroom of the World Stage where a delicious selection of bowl food awaited them… still not a Stormtrooper in sight!.
Marvel’s greatest superheroes were then called upon to guide guests through the next part of the attraction which concluded with the Marvel 4D experience. As the show came to a close the auditorium was flooded with Storm Troopers to lead the guests through to the Trade Federation Bridge into the new attraction.
Off through Star Wars the guests journeyed stepping straight into Yoda’s swamp and piloting the Millennium Falcon next to the infamous Chewbacca. As guests arrived in the final set of Star Wars a real life Darth Vader marched the guests to their final destination for the evening – the Cantina Bar!! As the Cantina band played away a number of their freaky alien headed friends roamed the bar interacting and dancing with guests to really create the feel of the cantina. Guests were invited to enjoy a drink in a dark and smoky atmosphere with the Cantina Band playing their catchy (if a little repetitive!!!) tune.
Food and Drink
Food by Dish provided a sumptuous canapé menu served in Film, which included chucked oysters and quail eggs benedict to name just a few. ‘Jabba the Nuts’ and ‘Light Saber Cheese Straws’ were left back at the planning stage!
After indulging in sumptuous canapés, bowl food of beef chimichurri and blood orange marinated scallops were served in the World Stage just before a refreshing English Garden cocktail and some amazing dessert canapés.
Guests were treated to further yummy cocktails served in chunky, heavy beakers whilst Star Wars shaped jelly treats were circulated in the Cantina.
Once everything was pulled together and after a pretty tight turnaround at the venue, we pulled off an amazing, fully immersive party allowing guests to feel part of the Star Wars hype and our client very happy!!
