Trilanco’s spectacular party wows 500 guests

500 guests from across the UK agricultural, equine and pet product industry gathered in Lancashire, for the grand opening party of Trilanco Ltd’s new headquarters.

Based at Mill Farm Sports Village in Wesham near Preston, Trilanco transformed part of the warehouse within its new 110,000 square foot premises to host the special event on 30 September 2017.

Guests were welcomed with a red carpet, champagne reception and wowed by the performances of stilt walkers, fire eaters and magicians.

The gigantic marquee structure constructed within the warehouse was also dressed to impress, with Trilanco’s distinctive ram’s head logo projected across the room, and table settings incorporating the brand’s green and yellow colours.

A four-course Lancashire-inspired meal was served, with Campbell & Rowley Catering’s signature white apple dessert surprise a favourite amongst guests.

After dinner, more surprises were revealed including a horse jump gin bar, a Victorian fair, plus a dodgem playground which brought out jovial competitive streaks!

Throughout the evening, guests were entertained on the dance floor by live artists, including electronic violinist OKTAM and Tom Da Lips on the saxophone, who complemented the top Manchester DJ set and an amazing light show, to create a unique party atmosphere.

Martin Balmer, Trilanco’s Managing Director said:

“It was great to bring staff, customers and suppliers together to celebrate the grand opening of our new premises and to thank everyone for their ongoing business with us.

“The party was a great success and we hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. These are very exciting times for Trilanco.”

With special thanks to Passion4Events, CK Marquees, Six15 Events, Campbell & Rowley Catering, Buzz Drones Ltd and Palmer Publicity.
