Your Bat Mitzvah and Bar Mitzvah Planners

A Bar Mitzvah is an important milestone but the pressure to make it special can be overwhelming.

As Bar Mitzvah planners we’ve created countless celebrations over the last 21 years and during this time we’re come to appreciate just how unique every child is. That’s why we don’t offer Bar Mitzvah packages. We only do personalised. Each celebration is tailored to your needs and exists for one night only. You won’t see the same again. We’ll help you create a unique celebration, totally different from anything your child or their friends have seen before.

“Cherish forever what makes you unique, ‘cus you’re really a yawn if it goes” Bette Midler

Venue Finding and Transformation

We specialise in hosting Bar Mitzvah parties in blank canvas venues, places that are different from the standard hotels; somewhere that can be styled and transformed.

It could be a venue that’s interesting for its design, history or location but it must be somewhere that reflects your family.

Our venue finding service will help you find the perfect venue and we’ll also attend the showround with you and once you’ve chosen your venue we’ll be full of suggestions on how to style it.

We’ve held events in an extraordinary range of places, from iconic venues such as London Science Museum and The V&A to beautiful hotels such as St Pancras Renaissance and The Shard, intimate townhouses such as Kent House Knightsbridge as well as creating events in pop up spaces including an abandoned tube station, outdoor gardens and even inside a car park.

Styling by Bar Mitzvah Planners Evolve Events

Creative Styling

We’re brimming with ideas on how to make a unique Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration. Over the last 21 years we’ve loved creating a whole range of themes. Our upcoming Bar Mitzvahs include a Book Festival for a literature loving book-worm, Around-The-World-In-80-Days theme for a boy who has a serious case of travel-lust and a summer camp filled with survival activities for a Bear-Grylls adventure loving child.

For the overall look, including lighting and styling to the imaginative touches such as edible invitations, we work with you to develop a clear creative direction that will ensure all the elements come together in a cohesive night of celebration.

Bar Mitzvah party entertainment by Evolve Events

Bringing The Fun To The Party

Often Bar Mitzvah entertainment centres around gaming and dancing but there are plenty of other ways to personalise your party.

As well as creating the big wow moments, entertainment can be used to pace the event. As guests arrive, we suggest welcoming them and setting the tone for the evening with Meet & Greet characters who give a taste of the excitement to follow and can also be used as ‘human signage’ around the venue.

Roaming entertainment acts such as spoken word performers, silhouette artists, caricaturists, strongmen or fortune tellers, can be dispersed throughout a venue or event. Performers can be interactive walkabout acts whilst others could be ‘hidden’ in different spaces for guests to discover.

Surprise and delight is the way to keep guests engaged, and drip feeding entertainment to teenagers in particular is a great way to help everyone stay interested and ensure the energy levels never dip.

Tech games for parties by Evolve Events

A Bit Of Tech’s Not Always A Bad Thing

At 13 not all children want to hit the dancefloor so we recommend entertainment solutions that get them participating and not hanging out in the corner on their phones.

That’s not to say modern technology is bad. The world of entertainment has advanced enormously in the last few years and there are now plenty of exciting ways digital technology can be incorporated into your entertainment options.

From virtual to augmented reality gaming, LED entertainers, walkabout robots; there’s plenty of unique digital entertainment to choose from. Photobooths have been replaced by digital mirrors or immersive sets and gaming tables have moved over for simulators. Artists can capture a portrait on a ipad and print it off in minutes whilst LED dancers can have your Bar Mitzvah party logo scrolling across their outfits as they perform.

Catering for Bar Mitzvah parties by Evolve Events

Gary and Anna Peters Evolve Events

For us events aren’t just about producing something that looks beautiful; they’re personal to your family and should resonate with who you are and what you’re celebrating. We’re here to make sure that all the stylish touches are there for a reason.

Over the years we’ve worked across all industries, delivering events that are distinctive and authentic. Our favourite events though remain the personal ones where people’s passions shine through.

We just wanted to say how much we appreciated your hard work – both before and on the day itself. The Bat Mitzvah day went incredibly smoothly and we were both able to enjoy the party, confident that your meticulous preparation meant everything was under control. Thank you for your amazing professionalism and charming approach throughout the process. With you at the helm, working in such harmony with the caterers and florist we were able to relax and enjoy the party from beginning to end.
From the initial meeting to the final dance the attention to detail, quick response rate and customer service was top notch. Gary and his team are the best event people around. They listened every step of the way to tailor our evening to what we wanted. They are truly a gift!
Before the mitzvah I asked who will be present at the event and received the best answer anyone could request; “I will be the first one there and the last one out.” The team always had amazing suggestions, walking us through each step of the way and ran the event with impeccable execution, bringing the party to life with the decorations, music, food and people.
Gary and his team helped us to organise the Bar Mitzvahs for both our sons. On each occasion they were a fantastic team to work with. Throughout they were extremely efficient and thoughtful and their wealth of experience made all the preparations both fun and stress free. In particular, the attention to detail allowed us to relax and have a fabulous day.
Jonathan and I would like to thank you and your team for being so incredible and making sure that everything was perfect for our sons B’nai Mitzvah. The boys had a fantastic time and loved every minute of it. My phone has been ringing non-stop with people thanking me for such a fun night.
Our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah party was a huge success.
With many teenagers, as well our friends and family, it was the right balance of fun, enjoyable and sophisticated. Gary’s team was excellent in transforming our brief into reality with great attention to detail.
We especially enjoyed his creative, structured and friendly approach making all the planning stress free. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Gary and his team as one of the top London party planners.
