It was a return to the 80s with metal rock bands, massive hair styles and an appearance from Darth Vadar, as the Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Conference Centre celebrated its 30th birthday.

Guests were served cocktails and canapés alongside entertainment from a break dance troupe before being shown the centre's newly refurbished sixth floor where they were served a three-course meal.

The evening celebrations, which took place on Wednesday night, came to a climax with a confetti cannon, before attendees carried on partying with 80s tunes.

Mark Taylor, chief executive of the QEII Centre, said: "Since 1986 we’ve been at the heart of the events industry, helping brands hatch big ideas. Over the years our venue has been graced by world leaders and countless famous faces, providing a stage for game-changing and innovative ideas as well as pioneering research. Tonight’s not just about celebrating our past, it’s also about inviting you to share our vision for the future, a future that’s set to see us continuing to evolve and push the boundaries to lead the event sector. Our recently refurbished 6th floor is part of our visionary approach and continued investment to open new horizons for event planners and offer greater flexibility for events and I hope that tonight’s event will help you all see what can be achieved."
