I think I speak for all of the Pretty Clever team when I say we really Rocked around the Clock last night!  From Gigantic Quiffs to Pink Cadillacs and 50’s Dancers to Giant Ten Pin Bowling, over 200 guests hand jived their night away in true retro style.

1950's Grease themed gala dinner


In the event world, time is really of the essence and in a perfect world we would have a whole day to set up for events with such grand, iconic theming.  So when I heard we had an incredible time limit of 2 hours to transform a conference room filled with over 200 delegates to an American diner/50’s prom I was a little shocked to say the least!

5:30pm and the loading bay doors swing open, making me feel like a borrower as a giant hamburger and ice cream sundae entered the room.  Hundreds of meters of pink, black and white draping began to douse the ceiling in colour and striking black covers and bubblegum pink sashes cover the chairs as if by magic!

Thanks to an incredible team the room was transformed in an amazing 100 minutes.  The stage proudly presented our stylish, authentic 50’s 4-piece band as a sea of Pink Ladies, T-Birds (and even Bill and Ben!) to name but a few of the amazing costumes flooded into the room.  The guests danced like professionals with our expert Jive dancers and put their moves to practice the sounds of our faultless DJ on a black and white chequered dance floor.

The guests jitterbugged their way right up to 1am where the team reunited to dismantle the 1950’s back to 2011.  If you happened to be at Brighton Seafront last night and wondered why there was a strange amount of Quiffs, A-line skirts, Pink Cadillac balloons and Extravagant Wigs then that might have been a little something to do with us…
