Sweet 16 party ideas and inspiration

Whether you’re looking for a London venue or a unique marquee party, we’ll work with you to find the perfect solution for your sweet 16.

You may have considered hosting the party at home in your garden. We can install your very own bespoke marquee nightclub, creating a truly unique club experience never-before seen by your friends. We’ll oversee the full build, provide an event manager to be there on the night to ensure everything runs smoothly (and safely!) and we’ll be there until the last guest leaves. We’ll ensure your favourite mocktails are on the drinks menu and served by our stylish mixologists. Our top London DJ will play the right music and take your friends’ requests.

If marquees are not for you or you simply don’t have the space at home, we know the London venues that allow 16th birthday parties and can re-design the right venue into the coolest club in town.

How our service works

Client Testimonials

We were really happy with the production of the conference; the stage set and lighting gave the event a real ‘wow factor’ and many of the delegates commented on how great it looked. The team on the day were able to accommodate last minute changes to presentations and audio, meaning that the whole event ran really smoothly. We were also delighted with the film that was produced on the afternoon and edited in a really short space of time.

Ms L Brand – Brighton and Sussex NHS

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both and your team for everything you did for the event on Friday, for the day itself but also the lead up to it. Neil, it was lovely to finally meet you in person and thank you also Mike for popping along to have a look at it all. There has been some great feedback this morning in the office – especially about how the room looked.

Ms C Moss – WPM Education

Once again, a massive thanks to you and your team for an excellent event yesterday. It surpassed all my expectations. You delivered a great Tech experience and I was delighted by the quality of production. I also appreciated the tremendous support, particularly the managing of logistics and the perfect execution of the team building event. I was delighted by how little I had to fret about on the day, because at every stage, you were ‘on it’. From a social media pov, it was also a great hit, evidenced by over 200 tweets with so many memorable images from the team!

Mr R Davies – Trainline

A little note to say a very BIG thank you to you all for arranging an amazing party for us last night – we have some very hungover but very happy people today. And all the little touches made such a difference; the food was fantastic and the gin cocktail was a massive hit. Thanks again, I realise it is an enormous amount of work, which you somehow manage to make look easy.

Ms J Hughes – Trainline

The party was superb. Everyone had such lovely feedback, thank you for looking after it so well so all of us.

Ms L Hennessy – Kingston Technologies

Everything was fab. The event ran smoothly and the evening was great, the cheese and port was great everyone enjoyed it and said it was so much more relaxed. I will definitely use you whenever I can in future, you made it much easier for me and working with you was a pleasure

Ms K Garland - ISS Facilities

Thank you so much for Saturday, it as great as always!! I’ll make sure I pass on your details to anyone who may be looking for someone and I’ll definitely be in touch again

Mr O Durham, ITV

Just wanted to say a HUGE THANKS for helping make our party AMAZING. You went over and above our expectations. Really appreciate all the little extra things you did, it was a massive success all round.
I will definitely be in contact the next time we need lighting and anything else for future events.
