Managing Director Ben Leeke launched Capability Events in 2003 as he saw an opening in the market for high end bespoke private parties.  It was a smart collaboration of all the contacts and knowledge that Ben had collated over fifteen years organising events for large country house and castle venues. Within two months clients included Virgin, The BBC, and wealth of high end celebrities and individuals.

Today the business focus is on private events and parties and Corporate Brand Support for clients such as Levis Strauss, Moet and Glenmorangie.  

We have a wealth of experience running quality events and a team of expert Event Organisers, Managers and Professional Crew who are all experts at making events come to life.

Once there was sunshine. The name of the title track on my next album. Stretch. Well technically an OctStretch. 8 doors. Sort of a circle. Mich loved it. CarFest loved it. Looks great with a blue sky- that I can’t supply. Sorry. Weather extra… #michelin #carfest #marquee

Proud to have been invited to sunny Dublin to install my little part of this spanking new Moet Concierge personalisation desk into Brown Thomas department stores! Well done to the six newly trained Moet specialists who will personalise many a Moet tin between now and the new year.  #champagne #champagnemoetchandon #champagneinfluencer #moet #moët #moetchandon #moetmoment
