End of Year School Celebrations, with a difference – Clifton College

Clifton College, June 2021

Complete event design and management, with Covid in mind, for end of year school celebrations with a difference. Making something special with what is possible.

Alastair Currie Events is very pleased to have provided the event management (including full design, delivery & all logistics) for the Clifton College end of year school speeches and ball for over 10 years now.

The regular speeches and end of year ball had been cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, and the occasion for 2021 was felt to need to be marked in the safest and best way possible for the pupils that had had a very tricky year indeed.

We worked closely with the school team in order to adhere to all legislation, guidance and school requirements regarding social distancing and best practice. A full logistics sheet worth of chairs, tables, kitchen equipment, loos and decorations were all brought in and installed along with an airy marquee.

We delivered a lovely occasion for the pupils, incorporating the school’s own Soul Band performing for drinks reception and again after dinner outside in their own covered structure, with a professional band playing as guests enjoyed dinner. A selection of funfair games were installed for guests to enjoy, with strict hygiene protocols, and a huge amount of effort went into ensuring that all guests felt safe, comfortable and of course that they had a great time.

It is always such a pleasure to assist this client with this important annual event, with a difference, creating a really well planned & well-delivered event site (remembering that School is still in session when we build, we are fully DBS compliant & put in place a variety of working procedures with this in mind). We had fantastic feedback that the pupils all really enjoyed it, and were very grateful to have this opportunity to mark the end of their time at the school in such a special manner.

We love to be on hand from the first delivery to site until the final litter pick! We would love to assist you with your event, please contact us to find out how we can help.
