Hayleyfest – 30th Birthday Party, October 2015

Hayleyfest was a big date in the Big Chief calendar due to it being our Managing Director’s 30th Birthday party! Over a year of planning resulted in an incredible night filled with 250 people partying the night away in four of our festival-themed tipis, giant flags, flower-stuffed wellington boots, live entertainment until the early hours, bucking bull, cocktail vouchers, midnight paella, photobooth caravan and inflatable sofas – you name it, it was there! The party even had its our website where you had to “register for tickets”, like a real festival!

Venue: Private property in Preston

Tipi: Three Big Hats & One Midi

Accessories: Wooden tables, large enclosed fire pit, log basket, bar, wooden barrels, uplighters, mirror ball, spot lights and fairy lights.

“Turning 30 was never going to go unnoticed, so I decided to throw a huge bash with all of my friends and family to mark the occasion in style & mayhem – in a tipi of course! Suffice to say, we raised the roof and we all had a mind-blowing time. Naturally the tipis took centre stage and with the different lighting I’d booked with Luminate Events, it just looked out of this world. People are still talking about it and the video shows just how much fun we all had. I know I’m biased, but I couldn’t have wished for a better venue for my Big [Chief] Birthday!”
