Twins 50th birthday party

What a joy it is being invited to provide our services for so many lovely people and at such a variety of special events. Last night was no exception, providing the lights and music for twin brothers Mark and Dean, along with their many family and friends for the occasion of their joint 50th birthday party. The venue was the upstairs function suite at the Red Lion in Alvechurch, where we received a very warm and helpful welcome from Becky – who kindly arranged easy access for us via the rear stairs. We had not worked at the Red Lion before, but what a lovely function room – very clean, well furnished, bright, airy and with plenty of room for a wide variety of parties. In one corner, a very nice bar and in the opposite corner (for us), a well positioned raised stage.

Whilst we arrive early at 5pm, our ‘play-time’ was relatively short, starting at 7pm, but music off at 11pm. This however was not a problem and with an excellent play-list supplied ahead of the party, the dance floor was lively all evening.

DJ Tony, on work experience, kept the party flowing all night and for the first time, quickly mastered our decks and DMX lighting, leaving me free to meet, greet and take a few party photographs. Despite a slight disagreement with the smoke detector, all-in-all, a great evening and our grateful thanks to Mark, Dean & Shirley for booking Top Hat Events for this very special 50th birthday party.
