Core Strength

Check out the gym in January: a sea of New Year Resolution-ers, fighting the flab with gusto to rediscover their core strength. We at BEYOND are doing the same, albeit in the office. Twelve years ago we set up as an events consultancy to work with clients to plan their event programmes with these objectives… tell me more

Save money with bespoke

It’s a common misconception that bespoke will empty your pockets. It’s true that Saville Row costs more than the high street but in the case of bespoke events it’s every inch your budget. A bespoke event is created to your exact specifications, ensuring your marketing communication objectives are at the heart. There is no forking… tell me more

Best of British summer festival

No need to wait for another Jubilee to come round to celebrate the very Best of British. Your summer event will be awash with red, white and blue.

The company director & producer trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and the musicians are sourced from the top orchestras of the UK. All opera performances… tell me more

Street Life

A night on the Nile(s)

4,160 miles, 9 months, 7 different countries and 2 (very sore) feet. The Nile is the longest river in the world and Levison Wood, a former British soldier, set out to walk from its length, starting in Rwanda, up to the Mediterranean sea. Recently featured on Channel 4’s ‘Walking the Nile’, Levison Wood gives an… tell me more

The art of cuisine

An evening of food and art theatre where the borders between the two collide. Watch live contemporary street art created before your eyes and create your own food art from molecular cuisine, made famous by Heston Blumenthal, but unseen by most first-hand. An art installation would be created live on a giant canvas wall by… tell me more

Mod Cons

It’s not necessarily where you hold your event, but when. Let BEYOND take you back to the swinging 60s, a decade which is being referenced everywhere, from the fashion runway to the latest West End play. (And if you haven’t seen Jersey Boys, go NOW). Start the party as Don Draper would start the day… tell me more

Knees up Mother Brown

East London is having a moment. The 2012 London Olympics put it firmly on the map as an area of cultural importance and a creative hub. Taking place in an east-end boozer (or recreate your own), with Chaz and Dave perhaps tinkling on the ol’ joanna. Pass around the jellied eels and pie ‘n’ mash… tell me more
