North East events firm shoots for the sky

1879 Events Management shooting party
A leading North East events company is shooting for the sky after successfully catering for a unique corporate event.
1879 Events Management, a subsidiary of Sunderland AFC, recently provided outside catering at Bond Dickinson’s annual clay pigeon shoot in the grounds of the historic Lambton Estate.


The event, organised by the national law firm’s Newcastle office, was attended by more than 180 staff and stakeholders, who competed throughout the afternoon in 23 teams.  

1879 Events Management were on site for more than 13 hours, serving up a packed breakfast and buffet lunch for 30 volunteers, as well as more formal catering for those taking part.  

This included a champagne reception and a bespoke, three course lunch with options including a ham hock terrine, herb and butter roasted breast of barn raised chicken and lemon posset.  

The firm, which acts as a full service company for all manner of corporate and private events across the North East, was also able to supply coat rails, glassware, linen and an easel, as well as an experienced team of bar and waiting staff.  

As added value, 1879 Event Management offered a number of prizes to be given away on the day, including VIP tickets to see the Foo Fighters at the Stadium of Light, where the company also manages hospitality and events.  

Michael Laidler, Sales and Key Accounts Executive at 1879 Events Management, said:  “We have worked in partnership with Bond Dickinson for a number of years and the firm’s popular clay pigeon shoot is an annual highlight in our calendar.  

“It’s an honour to be able to work alongside other key suppliers at an event like this and in particular to be able to showcase our services with such an iconic backdrop as the Lambton Estate.”  

1879 Events Management, which launched in 2012, offers a wide range of catering and event management services for events taking place across the North East and has lent its expertise to everything from festivals to business awards.
