Welcome to Troupe Events

Here we believe in celebrations, circuses, costumes, carnivals and creativity. We believe in seeking adventure, finding yourself, creating a community and making the unbelievable real through the design, creation and management of custom experiences.

We delight in fashioning completely unique themed events that offer a high level of guest interaction and engagement. We also assist smaller or less-theme-centred events with custom items (including décor and costume pieces), design and décor plans, and event coordination and management.



Décor & Design, Costume, Theme, Catering Presentation


We love seeing a project through from start to finish, but we also understand that sometimes you don’t need us around for everything. Should you just be looking for partial assistance, or something specific, we can help you out there too. We can assist with hiring and help source what you need. We create stand-alone custom items (costumes, invitations and décor) and also have a selection of creations that you’re welcome to hire, should you dare to delve.


Personalised Experiences and Celebrations


Our personal favourite is in creating unique guest immersion experiences ranging from budget-curbed to grand scale. We have concocted treasure hunts, zombie attacks, surprise birthday extravaganzas, routes of riddled wonder and murder mystery dinners. These experiences are not something that you choose off the menu – we’re open to suggestion and any ideas that you bring to the table for your personalised request.

Go on, ask us, we rarely say no.


Conference Theming, Office Celebrations, Press Launches


We offer themed packages or individual elements, for company teams to add something different to staff events. We know that you do not have the time to brainstorm when you’re busy focusing on the business objectives you want the event to achieve. We also assist brand/corporate clients looking to create engaging and exciting customer sessions or press launches and are able to work within brand guidelines while still creating a unique experience.

We create, but we can also organise...

We can summarise your ideas into a concept sheet and create a storyboard for you to work off, and we can manage and coordinate events (or parts of events). So chat to us if all you need is extra hands on the day, or assistance before an event.

A little more about our approach

We believe that one of the greatest gifts to give is a beautiful, unforgettable experience catered particularly to an individual’s tastes and wishes. This is what we seek to create through event design, creation and management - from the smallest friends-and-family dinner, to a large custom-themed celebration on a grander scale.

We want to take you out of everyday life into a place that exists beyond responsibilities and routine. A place of delicious escapism where you can be anything and try on experiences like clothing.

Having highly resourceful natures we love seeking out the bizarre and hard-to-find, and we delight in re-purposing found items, giving them a second life in a new skin to create costumes, props and décor items. To ensure every element offers the best fit, we seek to theme Troupe events from first invitation through to the last nightcap drinks and farewell hugs.

As much as we enjoy making things beautiful and interesting, we truly revel in creating custom adventures. We want experiences to be intense, memorable and other-worldly.

Those visiting should arrive with a sense of anticipation and a keen nose for adventure, ready to experience our world and to return to theirs, changed, with glitter on their shoulders and stars in their hair.

Words we’ve taken to heart

From our side a huge thank you for making the event so beautiful and special for our daughter! We were really impressed with your imaginative décor designs and the food presentation, as well as your professionalism.

Troupe Events have a breathtaking eye for detail and spectacular creativity. Not only do the events look amazing, they are well run and Mel and Gwynn are a pleasure to work with. I wouldn’t even consider doing an event with anyone else.

Gayle Colourful Office Farewell

Planning a birthday for someone who has done it all is no mean feat! Hearing about the birthday boy and his hobbies, they immediately knew what would work well! It was an absolute hit and I did nothing! They kept the guest list and made sure everyone arrived on time. They came in, created an event with ten friends, an unsuspecting birthday boy and an apocalypse. Then they left, clearing away all signs of the end of times and my home was exactly as it was.

Thank you Troupe Events for turning our Alex’s 21st birthday from a dream into a reality. You created a magical wonderland under difficult weather conditions and we are so thrilled with the outcome.Your professionalism and attention to detail is what impressed us the most.
We cannot wait to invite you back into our lives for another adventure.

Thanks for an amazing event on Saturday! Best birthday Zombie Hunt EVER! I’m looking forward to the pics and video. I hope the part where I’m screaming like a little girl was usable. That’s a real testament to how manly I can be 🙂 … And an even more real testament to how good the make-up was! (And I loved the way you whirlwinded across my house at the end and brought everything back to normal! Awesome job!) … And I have more party ideas for later this year. I’ll be in touch.
