Babington House Hotel and Spa located in the beautiful Somerset countryside is known as the celebs favourite party venue. STYLISH Entertainment have been actively involved with the team at Babington for the last 11 years. Starting in 2004 with Nigel Peirce as resident DJ, now we are involved with every wedding and party. We also production manage events including Fireworks for 1000 guests, acoustic nights with Tom Odell, KT Tungstall, The Shires and Nick Mulvey.
The Orangery at Babington House is normally the dining room which operates for 18 hours a day. So, when an opportunity comes knocking to completely transform it into a rocking party space, we embrace it thoroughly and then the adrenaline kicks in!
Below are some of our favourite shots of the transformation of the Orangery where we have staged parties for Basement Jaxx, Cuban Brothers, Jamie Oliver, Jeremy Healey, The Overtones, and many private clients. The Orangery can seat 90 people but standing you can get over 300 in the space which makes for a good party.
We were asked by Babington House in Somerset to create a Circus Themed party in their Orangery for over 300 of their members and guests. With only 3 weeks to create a circus big top in luxurious Red and Cream fabric, Ali Peirce whipped out her sewing machine and started sewing like a dervish. Three weeks later we installed the circus tent and Ali breathed a huge sigh of relief as her maths (not her strongest ability) had not let her down.
Meanwhile, Nigel Peirce designed the lighting, staging and sound to accommodate three live acts and three djs including Huey Morgan, Daisy Lowe and Nigel who played the warm-up and final set of the very successful night.
