GOLD eighties music festival (Launching 2020)
Myself and a few event industry friends are introducing a second festival on the Sunday of Noon ’til Moon at 10 Castle Street in Cranborne. We are utilising the same site footprint (up to 1,000 guests) and have created a fashionable 80’s music celebration, with the inaugural event welcoming Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp as the star guest, alongside multiple live acts and performers. The event is sponsored by Veuve Clicquot Champagne. www.goldfestival.co.uk
The Flamingo (Launching 2020)
In 2020, we launch a new concept venue. With a little imagination, and many hours of research, we look forward to opening a totally unique neighbourhood café bar, and social space. In what will feel like a hidden getaway, The Flamingo will boast a large cover-capacity, across 3 spaces, inside, and outside. We are creating an out-of-the-ordinary environment, and experience.
The constantly evolving kitchen will initially be home to a small collection of carefully curated food brands, including Brenda’s Burgers, Slice Club Pizza, and an all-day brunch concept to be announced nearer the time. The Flamingo – hang out, catch up, work, and play! We look forward to creating an exciting social hub for the local community, and visitors to the area.

Noon ‘Til Moon (2019-present)
Myself and a few event industry friends launched a boutique festival at a fantastic location in 2019. 10 Castle Street in Cranborne is a hidden gem in Dorset, a stunning mansion house with beautifully manicured grounds. We hosted 600 stylish guests at the inaugural event, which was sponsored by Veuve Clicquot Champagne, Mercedes-Benz, Saxe Coburg, and many more. This event is set to grow in size to 1,000 guests in 2020. www.noontilmoon.com
Press Play Rosé (2019-present)
Myself and a bunch of friends have joined forces to launch a super premium rosé. We have worked closely with our producers in Nice, South of France, to develop a beautifully light, crisp, and pale blend. A product of the Côtes de Provence, Press Play Rosé launched, softly, at various society events in Summer 2019. We look forward to seeing where this project takes us in 2020. www.pressplayrose.com
Tribeca Events (2018-present)
We started developing our own portfolio of events in late 2016. Owed to the sheer volume of events that we now put on throughout the year, we have launched an event promotions business. From concept shows, sportsman’s dinners and live bands, to business-focused events in collaboration with hotels in various areas of the UK, we have diversified into different spaces to keep ourselves interested. www.tribecaevents.co.uk
Tribeca Media (2017-present)
Formally Elite Media, which launched in 2014. Tribeca Media was created initially to look after our own portfolio of projects, employing full time web developers and graphic designers, who each know what makes us ‘click’. Incoming project enquiries from companies over the years have led us to take on occasional clients too. www.tribecamedia.co.uk
Chicken & Blues (2013-present)
What started as a side project when we launched our Boscombe store as a ‘proof of concept’ site, has now turned into a major part of our lives. We have won multiple awards since 2013. The Metro London named us in the top 5 chicken concepts in the UK before Theo Paphitis certified us with his business award. In 2017, we were lucky enough to win ‘Best Takeaway in the South East’ in the British Takeaway Awards, and in 2019, we won ‘Best family Restaurant UK’ at the Deliveroo Restaurant Awards.
We now have 3 sites in Bournemouth and Poole, and are looking to expand over the next few years. We have also fielded hundreds of franchise enquiries from around the UK, Europe, and further afield, but after an internal test-franchise went wrong, we have decided to hold fire on the franchise route. www.chickenandblues.com
Elite Living (2013-present)
Groupon launched a few years before Elite Living (then Live Elite). We could see their huge global growth, but has also identified their failings on a local/personal level and some service issues which had stopped them being able to sign more exclusive and high quality merchant clients.
Since launch, we have sold 200,000+ vouchers for 700+ businesses, and our subscriber base has now reached 70,000. During this time, we estimate over £15,000,000 of revenue has been circulated throughout our merchant network from voucher sales. We have also diversified into event ticketing, and collaborations with property, recruitment, and motoring companies. www.eliteliving.club
PRIVA (2009 – present)
A nightclub brand that I co-founded in 2009, with a venue in Bournemouth, alongside a second club in Holetown, Barbados. The PRIVA brand won many awards and was internationally acclaimed, hosting parties for celebrities from the world of sport, music, and television.
After closing the clubs in 2014, alongside new partners we have resurrected the brand, with a series of concept ‘brunch’ day parties, alongside one-off evening events at Halloween and New Year’s Eve. We signed an exclusive deal with Hilton Hotel for 2 years, until 2019. We now have various plans as to where PRIVA goes next. www.privaparties.com
