Electric Circus

The Brief

As the year drew to a close, Facebook London wanted a marker to celebrate another year of hard work with an event for up to 3000 staff members. The We Are Family London team were tasked to deliver a show stopping party, handling every aspect of the event from the concept right through to final delivery.

The Idea

We designed an 'Electric Circus' with the aim to transport guests into an incredible world of circus performance, fairground games and edible treats, all with a twist. A sensory rich environment with a focus on striking entertainment and huge technical activations. Above all, we wanted the event to be magical, impactful and allow guests to feel like it was their party, designed exclusively for them.

The Result

Arriving first at giant red velvet swags of curtains, guests walked across a seemingly traditional threshold to encounter the Electric Circus. Olympia was transformed with performers including headless men, zebras on stilts and aerialists, impactful set design and styling, and technical design including lighting, projection mapping, and large format LED walls. Areas for food, games, lounges, bars and a main stage were designed to maximise social interaction and networking for guests whilst all graphics and signage were delivered using sustainable materials and logistics were organised to reduce carbon footprint.

This was one of our favourite events to date. A fully immersive journey into the weird and wonderful world of the circus, flipped on its head - and definitely Electric.
