In-keeping with their ethos of supporting and giving something back to the local community, UK event management company Blue Monday Events has given their time to work with a group of hugely talented and passionate students from Farnborough Academy in Clifton to create their first event from scratch.
Starting late last year with a presentation to the school, the team at Blue Monday Events searched out the students with a real interest in creating beautiful events.
Once the group had been formed and under the watchful eye of Alice Rogers, event director for Blue Monday, they sat down to decide on their concept.
After much deliberation it was decided that they wanted their event to raise awareness of social issues in Nottingham and that they wanted to raise urgently needed funds to support homelessness in the city.
Alice Rogers said: “The guys at Farnborough have been a delight to work with. Their passion and desire to make the event succeed has been an inspiration to us all.
“Homelessness in Nottingham is an issue that effects many of us in some way and we should all do our bit to help.
“The team have come up with some great ideas and I particularly like their suggestions of using other talented students within the academy to provide the entertainment for the evening.
“Events is a fantastic industry to be involved in. It is challenging, confidence building and a wonderful outlet for anyone with a passion for creativity.
“The guys from Farnborough have worked very hard to make this happen, even down to painting their own table centres.
“This a great opportunity for local people and companies to get behind an event which will benefit the community on multiple levels.”
A Night in Hollywood takes place on Friday 25th May from 6pm at the Hope Centre in Clifton and tickets are available at £6 per person including food and a welcome drink.
