As a harvest moon rose over the Staffordshire countryside yesterday evening, its pink and orange hues perfectly mirrored the 8848 colours and we raised a glass to a successful rebrand.
After weeks of preparation, we were thrilled to welcome guests and friends to our beautifully renovated, 16th Century farmhouse and toast our move to the country.
Aspley Farm was built in 1507 but has been renovated to house our 25-strong team of marketing and PR professionals.
Last night was a chance to say thank you to everyone who has helped us on our way, as well as an opportunity to show off our fabulous new premises. The stunning grounds had been pruned, weeded and mown revealing our perfect countryside setting.
Guests were entertained by the sensational Bluebird Belles, a 1940’s vintage vocal harmony trio, as guests were invited to test their skills in our garden games – The Bootiful Game and The Game of Throws.
The champagne flowed, delicious canapes were served by private chef Simon Smith, and traditional ice creams all the way from Florence were served by Polly’s Parlour from a vintage pink and brown striped VW camper.
Huge thanks to everyone who joined us down on the farm for what proved a balmy, late summer evening – we hope you enjoyed celebrating our new name, new home and new look as much as we did.
