Our client was looking for corporate hospitality to entertain 60 of their top customers on four consecutive nights. They were looking for a theme and a full programme of entertainment to keep their guests entertained. As the majority of their guests would be male (and it was October!) an Oktoberfest set up on site within a marquee was ideal.

 The marquee was be themed in a Bavarian style, using props including giant beer tankards, bears’ heads and using traditional beer barrels for tables. The wow factor came as full table dressing was provided complete with candelabra centre pieces to create an authentic alpine bar.

 KDM organised the whole week arranging a full corporate entertainment package.

 On arrival guests were welcomed into by our Bavarian Dancers, dressed in traditional attire. For a pre-dinner drinks event with a difference all guests took part in a beer-tasting competition under the direction on James, our expert host. Guests were given a choice of six different Bavarian beers associated with the Oktoberfest, all served in a traditional stein glasses. Some guests regarded this as a challenge and got through all 6 beers in 45 minutes!

 During dinner a five-piece Oompah band provided background music creating a traditional festival atmosphere whilst after dinner the band played more up tempo songs complemented by a show from our Bavarian Dancers who then encouraged guests to take to the dance floor.  A highlight of the night was the yodelling contest, where 4 guests were chosen to compete against each other with the winner crowned the ‘top yodeller’.

 As an added bonus a different comedian performed on each of the nights. All were well known faces from ‘Mock the Week’ and were an excellent choice to end a fantastic evening.


Feedback from each of the events was extremely positive.

“The atmosphere got better and better each night. All the pieces came together and KDM will definitely be my first point of call for any future events.”
