Wedding Disco – Horwood House, Milton Keynes

I recently provided a wedding disco at Horwood House just outside Milton Keynes. The venue is a modern style hotel attached to an old country house.

Location– Milton Keynes, Horwood House
Travel Time –  35 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr 15mins. This is a longer setup than normal due to the location of the halls and the distance to carry equipment.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Bubble Machine – Yes
Lighting – On dimmer switches, although not all of it could be controlled. Since the refurbishment certain lights I was told had to be left on. These were right by the dancefloor and in my opinion contributed to a lack of atmosphere on the dancefloor. The party was good but with the lights dimmed could have been better. I did ask a number of staff several times if they could be turned off but no joy. Very odd setup!
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in same room as Disco, Tables around edge of dance floor
Staff – Organised and Helpfull except for the lighting. Also the power didn’t work in any of the sockets near where I setup. I had to run a long cable half way around the room to a different set of sockets. Fortunately this is something I carry with me.
