The Fun Experts ready to get the party (and the afterparty) started

The Fun Experts are returning to the Red Rose Awards at Winter Gardens Blackpool on June 9 with a unique mix of games and entertainment to start and finish an unforgettable night of celebration.

The fun begins with the official drinks reception, which will be the first event held in the iconic venue's new conference and exhibition centre. The state-of-the-art, £30m space will welcome more than 1,000 guests to this year’s awards ceremony, who will be greeted by a range of entertainment orchestrated by The Fun Experts.

Then, immediately following the main prize-giving dinner, the afterparty will come to life. It promises a truly memorable late night of drinks bars, tasty munchies, party music and amusing (and often raucous) fun activities including a photobooth and donkey derby.

Entertainment on the night is orchestrated by The Fun Experts, who are long-time supporters of the Red Rose Awards. The multi-award-winning organisation has won accolades for its work bringing the fun to organisations such as Google, the RAF and hit TV show The X Factor. They have also worked for many celebrities including Gordon Ramsey, Wayne Rooney, Gabby Logan and even supplied fun to a royal wedding.

The team has an inventory of more than 400 pieces of equipment available for hire, but is keeping its plans for the Red Rose Awards party a guarded secret.

Sunny Sandwell commented: “We are delighted to be working with the team at the Red Rose Awards. It's always a celebration like no other and one that we look forward to being involved with each year.’’

Richard Slater, organiser of the Red Rose Awards, said: “Our whole awards programme is designed to celebrate the best of the best in Lancashire, but as important as the trophies is the opportunity to bring everybody together, get them talking, finding out who their neighbours are and making new connections.

“We are delighted to once again be working with the creative minds at The Fun Experts to produce an event that’s got something for everyone. Whether you’re a winner, a shortlisted company or you’re just along for the spectacle, you’ll be able to enjoy the best of Lancashire food and music. And if you’re up for a late night, come and join hundreds of like-minded folk at an afterparty like you’ve never seen before.”
