    Henley Royal Regatta: Mahiki Henley

    In 2009 Gorilla Events won the exclusive contract to produce Mahiki’s outdoor event experiences, a project that would take us the length and breath of the country in a quest to take the Mahiki sunshine and trademark tiki style to the UK’s most prestigious events. The first instalment for a Mahiki home away from home was at Gorilla’s very own Henley Regatta site.  Mahiki Henley brought the largest riverside bar to the Royal Regatta and year on year has proved the most successful venue the event has ever seen.  Celebrities and VIP’s have been seen to fly in via our private helipad before being whisked to our exclusive VIP area.

    Wembley Park

    In 2016 Gorilla Events launched a food and drink revolution at Wembley Stadium. Taking on the challenge of stadium catering for the first time Gorilla worked with Sourced Market to eradicate the ubiquitous low quality highly priced trailer bar and food outlets that can so often been seen and accepted at large stadium events.

    With a superb line up of street food traders and some incredible craft producers we designed a new landscape for the stadium event day catering, and introduced premium offers across the site including our own container bars, and mass serve pop up bars and food outlets.

    Sushi Samba and Duck & Waffle: Taste of London

    Gorilla Events were approached by Samba Brands Management to design and produce a venue to house Sushi Samba and Duck & Waffle at Taste of London 2015.
    The brief was to take their iconic restaurants out of the Heron Tower and on to the road, recreating many of the design features. On site we had two days for installation, and with many of the elements pre-fabricated in the studio we were able to transform the simple marquee into a “home from home” for Duck & Waffle and Sushi Samba. In 2016 we returned to Taste of London and utilising some of the existing set and a brand
    new BBQ area, we produced the restaurant stand for these two iconic venues.
