We Are Gorilla


    BBC Proms in the Park

    In 2017 Gorilla added the BBC & Festival Republic to our client list with the BBC Proms in the Park & Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park contract.

    Our belief that large scale volume events can still be delivered with style and high production value alongside a premium quality serve set us apart from the industry competition.

    Taking over all the public catering and bars for the 50,000 sell out show we created a sleeker bar set up with craft and premium bar offerings,smart and stylish environments  tailored to the event and guest areas.


    Cornbury Music Festival

    Brand new to our portfolio for 2017, Gorilla joined forces with the team at Cornbury Music Festival to see off their Fabulous Finale in true style.

    Working closely with the headline sponsor Hook Norton Brewery, and introducing Nyetimber to the fold, Gorilla produced and operated all of the public and VIP bars across the site. These included the main Last Hurrah festival bar, The Nyetimber Bus, two Pubs on Wheels, The Hook Norton Real Ale Bar, VIP Bar & Guest Bars.


    Goodwood Festival of Speed

    Since 2015 Gorilla Events have produced and operated the Ice House Pit Lane, a multi unit food and beverage area adjacent to Goodwood House. In 2016 we added the Cricket Pitch to our operations on site.
    The project comprises of outlet infrastructure design and build, through to on site service delivery and trader management.
    Gorilla now owns over 200m of bespoke shop frontages, purpose built for the event which we deploy each year and work alongside renowned street food operators to curate the food outlets.
    As well as managing the 30 food outlets Gorilla also operates 7 in house bar outlets and several coffee shops.



    Gorilla teamed up with Richard Turner (Hawksmoor) and his team behind Meatopia in 2014. The event is a celebration of all things meat related with over 50 of Londons best meateries sending in their top chefs and signature meat dish to contend for the top seller spot.

    Since our first outing Gorilla have been on hand to deliver all the bars across the site and work with various agencies to service impressiveactivations for Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels, Sailor Jerry, Buffalo Trace, McGuigans Wine, Casillero del Diablo and Beefsteak Wine. Not to mention our friends at Fullers Brewery with their Westside Drinks craft range including Frontier craft lager and Sierra Nevada.


    Polo in the Park

    Gorilla have worked with Polo in the Park since 2011. Returning for our 7th year in 2017, Gorilla design, produce and operate all bars across the site including the 7000 capacity Mahiki Coconut bar with pitch side raised VIP deck and our bespoke built Lanson Champagne Bar & Garden.
    In 2015 we launched the Grazing Paddock Food Court, bringing a range of London’s best restaurants and street food traders to this thirsty and hungry crowd. Taking up the challenge in 2016 we saw sublime food from Mark HIX, Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Restaurant, Smokestak and Bubbledogs to name but a few.


    Goodwood Revival

    In 2016 Gorilla Events added the world famous Goodwood Revival to its portfolio.
    We designed and built 10 vintage 1940’s shop units and curated a roster of street food traders to deliver and outstanding addition to this incredible well dressed event in their Over the Road area.
    As well as managing the 8 food outlets Gorilla also operated our own in house Victorian Pub and a Goodwood Organic Bacon Roll & Coffee shop.
