60th Birthday Party

60th Birthday Party

Venue: Private Residence, Cornwall
Agency: GDC


A wealthy landowner in Cornwall wanted to create a stunning event to celebrate his mother’s 60th birthday. The event was to be a stylish Egyptian themed dinner dance on the estate with, after- dinner cabaret entertainment.


We designed a bespoke temporary structure overlooking the lake, with huge glass-walled pagodas leading to a fully produced dining and performance structure. A large pyramid stage was constructed complete with theatrical effects of dry ice, hydraulic lift artist reveal and an extensive moving head and LED lighting rig.

A swing trio entertained during dinner followed by a fully choreographed Egyptian Dance show complete with pyrotechnics and magical illusions. The evening was concluded by a jaw-dropping firework show over the lake, set to live music.

All structures and associated facilities, power generation and distribution, interior and exterior lighting design & installation, staging audio and entertainment were provided by Oxygen.


“Thanks very much for an amazing party and please pass on my congratulations to all involved – for the past two weeks Mum and I have been ploughing our way through HUNDREDS of thank you letters and it would appear our party is close to being voted the party of the decade! Of course this is all due to your team’s hard work and dedication and I hope that they all enjoyed the evening as much as we did.”
