This gig was definitely one to remember! Highclere Castle, home to TV’s very own Downton Abbey was a spectacular venue for such a unique evening of celebration.
Around the World in 80 Days
The theme for the evening was Around the World in 80 days – a great choice! The guest’s attire and the venue’s decorations reached a new level! As we arrived at the venue, not only were we greeted by picturesque sights of the up-lit castle and the beautiful grounds, but leading up the entrance were life-size props of camel and elephants lining a red carpet through the door. If the entrance wasn’t enough, there was definitely more to come!
We set-up our equipment while the guests were enjoying their 3 course dinner so that our arrival was kept a secret. Immediately after the party sang “Happy Birthday” to Ed, we began our first song and surprised all of the guests! Our element of surprise really gave the evening a boost of excitement and kicked off the night with a bang. There was definitely a party atmosphere in the air!
We had a blast performing for Ed’s 50th and so enjoyed being able to experience such a historical place. Check out the photos in the gallery for a small glimpse into a great evening!
