The Railway Ball is a firm fixture on the DesignScene calendar, in partnership with CL Events. With such a history, we are challenged every year to make the event bigger and better than the last.
Every year we create a brand new theme for an inspired and visually exciting Gala. Over this time, we have designed and produced events inspired by Icon & Idols, Rio Carnival, Glam Rock and Pop, Manhatten Express, Bollywood, Motown and Soulcity and Moulin Rouge.
The focal point of each event is the use of technology, curated entertainment and visually stunning sets. From a floor to ceiling projection mapped stage, ever changing environments, animated projections, use of staging and graphics throughout the spaces, a striking yet sophisticated look and feel is created each time to surprise and delight our guests.
Compered by various hosts over the years, we have worked with Phil Jupitus, Brian Conley and Jon Culshaw among others, while entertainent has comprised West End performers (complete with a young Michael Jackson straight off the West End show) and the 14 piece AllStars Collective band, providing an engaging, exciting and dynamic show each time.
"The entertainment is fantastic and I look forward to it year after year."
