WE ARE

RETRO

Close your eyes. Dream of the past, forgotten music playing from an old radio when you were a kid, movies that have left you with a bittersweet curiosity for an époque that is gone, a story your grandma told you when you were too young to know whether it was real or not. Let your imagination run wild.

Wouldn’t you want to recreate what you have just seen in your mind for a special occasion, maybe a big changing moment for your company, the launch of your last product or a charity event?

Moments that you want to make memorable, that you want to remember yourself, like that story that your grandma once told you.

Retro events is the first events company in London designed to take you back in time. The range of options vary from the 20s prohibition era portrayed in Chicago to the colourful 50s college carnival from Grease. We specialise in four iconic decades of the 20th century: the roaring 20s, the colourful 50s, the shimmery 70s and the funky 80s. It is up to you how far back in time you want to travel, let us worry about the rest.

Entertainment

We strongly believe that entertainment is the core element of a great party. Our creative team (directed by Giulia Settomini, an icon in the dance entertainment industry with Dancing With The Stars and the Expo Milan 2015 in her portfolio) is skilled at designing the most captivating shows and activities. Time is going to stop for a night of magic.

Design

The grand designs at Retro are to transform reality into a fantasy world and make you forget for a second what point you’re at in space and time. Decorating ideas are to be discussed between you and our team, to make sure we can achieve exactly the atmosphere you have in mind. The event design is an important aspect since we aim to make you feel at ease, and of course, retro!

Management

Great management is necessary for an event to flow smoothly and without the typical stress that surrounds big occasions. We make sure that our events managers are organized, precise, and sharp but also open and creative, ready to help with any occasion and with great problem-solving skills — with a smile; problem-solving without a smile is a useless skill in big events.

Venues

London certainly offers a spectrum of locations and scenes that is difficult to find anywhere else. The unique venues of London satisfy every taste, from classy to hipster, from outdoor lovers’ to nightclub enthusiasts’. We will research and hire spaces for you so that you are free to choose yourself between a number of fabulous venues.

Technology

Retro is linked to the past, the concept of our events takes inspiration from vintage atmospheres, but the best way to recreate the past is being a step ahead of the future. We offer a range of options to make your party amazing: LED or classical lighting, screen projections but also holograms and augmented reality; how realistic do you want your trip back in time to be?

Catering

High quality of food and drinks is also a must for a successful event. We are aware of that and we collaborate with the best catering companies in the UK to guarantee you the best and most amazing food experience. Whether it’s canapés, bowl food, or a formal dinner that you would like, we will work out refreshments to remain within the theme you have chosen for your party.

BOOK ONE OF OUR

EVENTS

Doing your event in Retro style is an exciting opportunity to create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. We are willing to emphasize the features that are important to you on your night, so whether it’s a charity ball in which the entertaining aspect is on the spotlight or a networking event in which people need time and comfort to discuss things over a heavenly dinner, our events will be structured in the way you desire.

The old-styled atmosphere that will surround you throughout the night is going to create a unique bond between the participants of the event; your guests will feel a sense of belonging and connection thanks to the opportunity to spend a night in the past. We aim to make everyone feel special, forget your everyday life’s worries, and open up to people around you. Retro will offer you a magical experience!

AWARD CEREMONIES

It is important to celebrate the outstanding achievements of a company with the right awards ceremony, since praising someone who has done a great job will stimulate every member of the team to give his or her best in the future. We have seen thousands of TV awards where superstars walk down the red carpet; how about you walking down a catwalk from the past instead? It’s a special night after all!

Charity Balls

Charity Balls

Charity balls aim at creating an open environment for guests to feel that they can trust the organization, allowing easy fundraising throughout the night. It is important to offer a meaningful moment of sharing and caring, and Retro is more than capable of setting up an event where, besides an impressive, original, and stimulating atmosphere, the overall aim, the “do it for charity” mantra, is never forgotten throughout the event.
