The Natalie Kate Moss 10 Year Celebration
Last year, Saving Grace Events worked with The Natalie Kate Moss Trust to make their ten-year celebration event unforgettable.
ABOUT THE NATALIE KATE MOSS TRUST
The Natalie Kate Moss Trust was set up in 2012 by the Moss family, after the sudden death of Natalie at the age of 26 due to a sudden Brain Haemorrhage. The trust hopes to support ground-breaking research into the prevention and treatment of brain haemorrhages, to stop more tragedies from occurring.
The brief for this event was to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Natalie Kate Moss Trust and all things Manchester! The event was to be immersive, fun, and different to a standard charity event. Saving Grace Events team members Rebecca, Lauren, Becca, Molly, and Claire were responsible for bringing the event to life.
OUR SOLUTION TO THE BRIEF
For a non-traditional charity event, the venue was always going to play a key part. That’s why we decided to host the event under Concorde. Not only was this a unique venue, but it also served as an extra fundraising opportunity. Guests were even able to look around inside the plane in return for a donation.
The Manchester theme was woven throughout different elements of the evening. For instance, Manchester-themed canapes and cocktails were served up, alongside entertainment from Mr Wilson’s Street band and live jazz bands from the Northern Quarter. Other acts included a saxophonist, a ‘Hacienda meets Warehouse Project’ set by DJ Steve O, plus a performance from the poet Tony Walsh. The event was hosted by Michelle Eagleton, who wore a bespoke dress designed to look like a bee, and Manchester drag queen Belinda Scandal.
This theme carried through into the dressing of the venue. Each table had a Manchester bee centrepiece, with table and floral décor by Verdure. The whole event had a purple colour scheme, to reflect The Natalie Kate Moss Trust branding. We also projected the Natalie Kate Moss logo onto the front of the Concorde Centre building, to really make a statement.
This event raised £50,000 for charity, which is incredible! The whole event was visually really impactful and definitely had the ‘wow factor’. People were on the dance floor until the last minute, and many guests even said it was the best night they’d ever had. The best thing, though, was seeing how happy Fiona, Natalie Kate Moss’ sister, was seeing her vision brought to life.
“Working with Saving Grace Events was such a delight from concept to delivery. Not only did they really listen to what we wanted from our event, they understood our vision, to create a charity evening like no other; random, alternative, entertaining, electric, a night our guests would not just attend, but experience, a night that they would feel, a night that they would talk about for weeks on end. And they certainly delivered. An evening dining under the Concorde, an evening filled with the weird, the wonderful, the different, the random.” – Fiona Moss
