The Eventist Group, formerly Best Parties Ever Ltd, saw turnover grow by a third in the 2016/17 financial year.

The group turnover rose from just over £15 million to more than £20m last year.

Tim Stevens, MD of Eventist Group, said: “It has been an exciting time for Eventist Group since our relaunch last year and this year’s financial results prove how busy the whole team have been. This has fuelled our energy for the eventful spring/summer season ahead and we can’t wait to show people what we’re made of.”

The news follows a record season of 237 Christmas parties hosted by Best Parties Ever and more than 375 events which other brands in the group supplied for.

Eventist Group’s catering business Tapenade served a 4,000 people at Farnborough Air Show while Tobacco Dock Food delivered its first entirely vegan offering for the Lush Summit 2017 for more than 3,000 people.

Arribar!, the group’s bars and drinks specialists, and iELive, the company’s event technology arm, had a presence at events up and down the country including the Henley Regatta and Red Hook Crit.

This year is set to be even more successful for the group with sales increasing for its regional Christmas parties and confirmed business at a number of UK-wide festivals, shows, weddings, corporate events and sporting events, including a return to Glastonbury for Arribar!
