drp hosts remarkable 35th Anniversary extravaganza at West Midlands Safari Park

drp hosts remarkable 35th Anniversary
Saturday 20th June saw drp host their spectacular 35th Anniversary celebration event at West Midlands Safari Park. Over 900 guests including the drpteam, friends and clients attended the day and night extravaganza complete with park tours, workshops, gala dinner, a showcase finale including live animation, choir, fireworks and the same production size as the main stage of Glastonbury. The team at drp have so far completed 28 out of the 35 CSR projects they promised to deliver in their 35th year and have raised over £1million in their time working with charity Springboard UK.

Guests were invited for a family fun day starting in the Park’s giant Tree Tops marquee which was transformed into a VIP hospitality area where refreshments were served including a bar and BBQ throughout the day. All the guests had access to the park’s usual attractions including all rides and of course toured the park reserve on the safari bus. The drpteam put on a huge production and entertainment schedule with workshops, a history of drp, a live steel band, digital and interactive activities and the Hipcats performing live on the outdoor stage.  

The evening saw guests enjoy a drinks reception amongst the safari parks dinosaur attraction before being transported to the regal Spring Grove house where the formal gala dinner and showcase finale was held, followed by the show after party. The production values for the evening entertainment were huge and matched that of the main stage at Glastonbury, the finale show saw a spectacular live production show, live choir, the entire drpteam take to the stage and an impressive fireworks show. The finale show was followed by an after party on the lawn marquee complete with DJ, dancefloor and a set from drp’s very own band – ‘The Possiblers’.  

Dale Parmenter group CEO commented on the overall day “This 35th anniversary celebration event has been an extremely momentous occasion for all of us here at drp. The team have put in months of enormous effort to ensure that this was a spectacular day and night for all and ultimately highlighted our promise to clients that ‘anything’s possible’. This milestone celebration has been by far the most elaborate and exciting to date and it’s only going to get bigger and better. I am delighted to have shared our history and indeed our future with our guests and this has been a true testament to the hard work and creativity that our company is based on”.
