There is nothing better than relaxing in front of one of your favourite movies, reading an exciting novel or taking a trip down memory lane and visiting a cherished travel destination. Exposure to pop culture, art and travel really influences our lives, hobbies and interests, which fundamentally shape the decisions we make.

As the decades go by, more and more classics surface, becoming timeless in our repertoire of celebrated loves, from the likes of Back To The Future to Harry Potter and Thelma & Louise to Hook. We can draw on these titles and find comfort knowing that they hold nostalgic value, but they can also be drawn upon as inspiration for our own celebrations when brought to life as live event experiences. Here are some unique ideas on how you can use movie classics to inspire your next private party or event.

Back To The Future

Back To The Future
Back to the Future – 1985 Movie

Back To The Future will always be up there amongst one of the greatest movies ever produced. It is a timeless classic and one that has a serious fan following, which many moments in the film collection inspiring a variety of events over the years. Recreate the famous scene in the saloon and have an American West theme, with authentic beer, a whisky station and full cowboy attire. Be careful not to get involved in a brawl!

Depending on the colour of your swan will influence the type of food served – naughty or nice.
