Description

We are an organisation of creatives, artisans, builders, thinkers and riggers, and together we possess an array of skill sets which allow us to tailor every aspect of an event. We were formed in 2013 as a sister company to illumiNaughty, an event we have run since 2006. This has given us the knowledge and know-how of how events work and what they need, in order to run efficiently and avoid the headaches that come with production. After expanding quickly across the U.K. demand soon grew for our services across Europe and further afield. We currently work in Dubai, Ibiza, California, Croatia and Saudi Arabia, with plans to reach new destinations over the upcoming seasons.

All of our productions are dipped in imagination, built by artisans, and installed by professional riggers.
