About us

Bubbling with Personality. Leading the market. Doing things right. Available 24/7. Giving back.

Hello there! Welcome to spectacular.

The buzz around live events is that, by definition, they happen in real time – and they only happen once. So whether it’s your work Christmas party or your wedding day, we have one shot to nail it.

When we started out, nearly 14 years ago, I had the same excitement and drive as I do today – to create incredible events that take people’s breath away. We call it ‘creating the spectacular’.

Back then we had nothing more than a shed, a van and – most importantly – tonnes of energy. Over the past 14 years we have grown quickly into an unparalleled, dedicated and creative team. Our company runs a fleet of vehicles and owns a warehouse in Chessington, home to our stock of cutting- edge events equipment. It’s very cool – please come and visit!

We’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest celebrities and brands – including Apple, Google and British Airways – and hosted countless fun and memorable parties for people around the country.

The next decade promises to be even more exciting, even more challenging and even more innovative. We will continue to dare to be different, pushing the boundaries of our industry to bring you spectacular events at work, at home and in your community. I actually can’t wait!

The whole Clownfish Events team together

Meet the Team

1. We bubble with personality.

We are quirky, energetic, refreshingly different and tonnes of fun. From our office-based planners to our events guys on site, the Clownfish team is unequivocally charming, delightful and personable.

Visit us in Chessington and see what we’re all about. Tea, coffee and hobnobs served all day.

2. We lead the market.

We want Clownfish Events to be the go-to name for high quality events. We promise to stay innovative and on top of our game; we challenge our industry and push the boundaries of what is expected of us; and we’re always hungry for whatever might be around the corner.

3. We do it right.

We’re not interested in cutting corners. From the moment you engage us, we’ll take care of the details. From mood boards, to CAD plans, to people management, to insurance – we’re here for the duration, taking the strain and making your life as easy as possible.

4. We’re available 24/7.

We live and breathe events, so we understand that they’re never limited to the 9 to 5. Clownfish clients have access to our team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without exception. We know you’re busy, so we’re here to take the strain.

5. We give back.

We offer preferential rates for charities and give our employees the opportunity to support causes close to their hearts. We support disadvantaged young people through our charity partner, Eikon, and offer mentoring and work experience to promote skills development, hard work, fun and friendship.

Real-life customer stories.

“It doesn’t matter which staff arrive, we always get the same service delivery. They work really well with our students, with our staff, with our guests as well too, and that’s really important in a school environment.”

“It was so important to me that this event went well. It was the first awards event for the magazine… we had so much good feedback, the atmosphere was great, the production worked so well. I just couldn’t say enough good things about it.”
