We were contracted for full event management of our client’s annual awards show, recognising legal talent from around Leicestershire.

The client requested a Hollywood Inspired event and the theme was ‘A Night at the Movies’ allowing attendees to dress as their favourite movie star or in full Hollywood glamour.

The event was held at the Athena Conference and Banqueting Centre in Leicester. Athena used to be the former odeon cinema, so was befitting of the theme for the event.

The whole event carried the movie theme throughout and during the evening the big screen played numerous films of past and present and the background music during dinner were iconic movie soundtracks.

The award show itself was very moving with emotional speeches and of course in keeping with the theme, winners were presented with Oscar-Style trophies.

Towards the end of the night and to open the dance floor we played ‘Thriller’ on the big screen, which is famous for unprecedented merging of filmmaking and music.


“As someone who has organised a number of large events myself, it was a struggle to delegate my main event as President of Leicestershire Law Society almost entirely to Nikoma and Simone due to other pressures that I was under at the time. 

I need not have worried!  I saw all of our ideas brought to life in the most amazing way due to the joint efforts of Simone and Nikoma, a top team if ever there was one!! 

The style, attention to detail and over all effect of my Hollywood Glamour theme awards ceremony was literally stunning.  The room at the venue looked amazing, the art deco design of the room continued perfectly through to the styling of the table plan and tables and the stage.

The event was slick and faultless and all the feedback was positive summed up beautifully by one attendee who simply described the entire event as “epic”.

I would not hesitate to recommend Nikoma and Simone at Deux Bells Event Services.  I cannot speak highly enough of them”
