Client Christmas Party

Roundhouse, London, UK

The Roundhouse is one of the most incredible live performance spaces in the world, where the biggest names in music, theatre, circus and spoken word take to the stage. The Grade II listed building was transformed into a ground-breaking performing arts venue 50 years ago, and has welcomed legendary artists from all over the world to perform in its unique spaces.


AP LIVE had the opportunity to assist the client in managing a large-scale Christmas Party production. The event was managed alongside AAVS, who provided the technical services for the event and AP LIVE supported the client in logistics and delegate
management. The event was the client’s first Christmas party for staff since before the pandemic and needed to be a huge hit. Hosted in The Roundhouse, a drinks reception took place in the balcony and dinner in the main space, with 700 guests being treated to a show-stopping performance by the 7 piece band The Kitts. The night ended with a fantastic DJ set by Sam Totolee.

Services Provided

  • We designed, created and managed a bespoke registration platform for
    the client – designing it to align with their event branding.
  • We also provided a team of registration assistants to check in the 700
    expected guests. Having created a detailed briefing deck prior to the
    event, our amazing team were able to efficiently check in the guests that
    appeared on coaches and independently around 6.15 pm, and check in
    around 400 guests who arrived at 6.30 pm.
  • The client needed support sourcing a fantastic party band to get the party
    going. We recommended a few different options and the client picked a
    strong favourite with a 7-piece band called The Kitts. The band consisted
    of 3 vocalists, guitar, bass guitar, drums and keys. They even performed a
    specially rehearsed version of Black and Gold to fit in with the client’s
    theme. During this song a massive confetti drop enhanced the
    performance, covering the guests with 38kg of paper confetti (the most
    amount the venue has ever seen at a gig!).
  • The client also requested assistance sourcing and booking additional
    theming for the venue. We provided stunning large LED lit cherry blossom
    trees that flanked the stage at both sides and a forest of LED trees that
    surrounded the centrepiece to give an overall magical finish to the stage
    set up.
