2015 Round-up – January to June
We take a look back at the best events from January through to June, plus the launch of two of our most exciting products to date.
Costa book awards – Branded photo pod and backdrop
The Costa Book Awards, formerly known as the Whitbread Prize, is one of the UK’s most prestigious and popular literary prizes and recognises some of the most enjoyable books of the year, written by authors based in the UK and Ireland.
The 43rd Award Ceremony celebrated and rewarded a wide range of fascinating books and authors across all genres, you can view all the winners here.
The 2015 BAFTAs was awash with glamorous celebrities from across the globe strutting their stuff down the red carpet, dressed in their finest. Often the dress, the hair and the make up receive more attention than the award ceremonies themselves and we took full advantage of that. For the 68th BAFTAs we were fortunate enough to be backstage with the hair stylist to the stars, Charles Worthington to see the Red Carpet glamour look come alive.
To celebrate Charles Worthington’s 7th year of styling at the BAFTAs, we installed our latest and most innovative product to date, the 360° booth, in one of the luxury styling suites at the Savoy Hotel. The carefully selected Charles Worthington glam squad occupied three suites with one being recognised as the 360° Glam Cam room, where even Charles himself found time between interviews and offering style tips to the stars and stylists alike to give us a 360° spin.
Brit Awards 2015 goes 360
The Brit Awards 2015 will always be remembered for Madonna’s spectacular fall from grace during her performance and for Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran capping off a monumental year and sharing the spoils with two prizes each. For the 4th consecutive year we provided branded photo booths in the official VIP after party area and this year we turned the biggest night in UK music 360-degrees.
CMA Festival 2015 – Branded photo pod and and backdrop
Country superstars from across the Atlantic joined forces for a week long Country-to-Country Festival in Europe. The festival played to sold out crowds all over Europe with a sold out weekend at the 02 Arena in Greenwich.
Country 2 Country brings the biggest names in country music together and the line-up this year included Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Brandy Clark, Brantley Gilbert, Kip Moore and more.
The photo booth used for the event was the social media photo pod, sponsored and branded by the Country Music Association and Nashville Music City. CMA is dedicated to bringing the poetry and emotion of Country Music to the world.
L’OREAL – Branded photo pod and backdrop
To mark the 60th anniversary of L’Oréal’s long serving live hairdressing competition, the brand embarked on a tour rewarding the partnership between L’Oréal Professionnel and British hairdressing. The series of events celebrated hair, beauty and fashion in a unique, immersive and aspirational way. The competition reached over 900 photographic entries from some of the brightest talents and high profile names, with the leading figures from the industry selecting the finalists.
We supplied L’Oréal with a bespoke social media photo booth for their extensive UK tour throughout April (April 9th – 23rd) see dates here.
Bicester Village – Branded Taxi Photo Booth
Premium designer outlet Bicester Village launched a 6 week campaign to showcase a number of top ‘British Designers’ back in May. The ‘Best of British’ showcase offered an electric mix of both emerging and established designers to give visitors a rich slice of British Fashion History.
To keep in theme with all things quintessentially British we supplied Bicester with an icon of British culture – a branded taxi photo booth.

To entertain the guests there was a fantastic acoustic trio Wandering Hands and a BMW branded photo pod, which included a rather special prop …
