Gala Dinners That WOW Throughout

Here at Avant Garde Events, we understand how much work goes into planning a gala dinner, and while we don’t specialise in catering, we do know a thing or two about all the other aspects which make for a successful night, having years of experience in the events industry.

Gala Dinner Planning

It’s not just about planning a delicious meal for those attending but ensuring that everything from the lighting and décor to the music and entertainment creates the atmosphere you want. Whether it’s a professional awards ceremony, a night of celebration or even a charity function to raise money for an important cause, we can help you deliver a night that engages your audience from start to finish.

Our selection of products and services allow you to organise a gala dinner that sets the right tone, protecting your professional reputation as a business. From high-quality sound systems that ensure presentations can be heard at every table to entertainers that make the night both fun and memorable, your event will leave a lasting impression on your guests for months to come.

It’s easy to put together a bespoke package to create the look and feel you want for your event.

Our extensive range of products and services includes:

  • Audio visual hire

  • Drapery & backdrops

  • Photobooths, social pods & magic selfie mirrors

  • Light up letters

  • Live performers, entertainers & bands

  • Specialist DJs

Spectacular Nights with Avant Garde Events

Our professional event organisers have years of experience in the industry, understanding what makes the difference between a gala dinner that gets results and one which fails to inspire. Our team works closely with you to plan each part of the night, and we can even help your business enhance its brand image.

Imagine bespoke GOBO projections of your company name spun around the room, giant light up letters which showcase your event’s purpose or an interactive social pod linked to your social media accounts.

Not only do we focus on making sure your venue looks perfect, but we create the right atmosphere with high quality lighting, sounds, drapery and entertainment that’s ideal for your gala dinner, complementing any styles or themes you have in mind.

Why work with us?

  • Free venue finding – We can identify the perfect setting to host your gala dinner, tailoring our search to your requirements. We can even liaise with the venue for you.
  • We’ve worked at countless prestigious venues across the South East, understanding the best set-up to create stunning visuals and memorable moments.
  • We offer bespoke event planning so that you can choose your favourite products and services to ensure your gala dinner is a huge hit.
  • Our meticulous attention to detail means that we’ll transform the venue for you, setting up any décor and audio visual equipment requested, and then dismantling and removing all items after the gala dinner has finished.

In fact, on the night, you’ll be free to perform your duties and enjoy the night while we take care of everything else.
