Professional 18th Birthday Party Planners

We are THE 18th Experts, Over 100 Parties a Year


18th Birthday party ideas and inspiration:-

18th Birthday Parties only need a few basics party ideas to make a great night happen.

Go for a Great Marquee with amazing lights and one of our Mobile Nightclubs then you will need Fantastic Cocktails and  our Delicious Street Food to make your party really stand out. Other 18th Party ideas are making sure you tell all your guests what a great party you are organising. Don’t skimp on the invites. Not just online but a proper invite, it makes people realise you are organising a great party rather than a BBQ in your parents garden. Remember this sort of party is about creating the Hype and then living up to it by getting us – Capability Events involved to make it The Party of the Year.

Notes for Parents Organising an 18th Birthday Party:

If you’re the Parent or Guardian, and let’s not beat about the bush here the person paying the bill, we understand a successful party is a balance between your budget and your teenager’s vision of their absolute dream party.  As creative event organisers, we are almost always able to provide a number of practical solutions to make the dream a reality.

We know that each 18th Birthday Party is unique to the person celebrating their “coming of age” and we are highly experienced in the many different requirements that are so much a part of this important milestone.  Our vast experience and the creativity we put into each and every 18th Birthday Party guarantees that it will be the most talked about event of the year.  From the very first, no obligation consultation we have with you, until the very last bit of clearing up is done – we take the responsibility to be in absolute control throughout every stage of your event.

Part of the success of our outstanding parties is that we control excess without obviously doing so. In this way you get excellent value for money with more than satisfied guests.

We take our responsibility for young people extremely seriously but they will never know that. We allow them free cocktails and drinks all night but have subtle ways of ensuring that the little darlings last till midnight rather than getting tired and emotional by 9pm! We have found it is better to stay in control of the alcohol consumption with expert bar staff tailoring drinks to the guests, rather than restricting spirits which only encourages pre drinking and bringing their own alcohol to the party. We advise that you allow us to thin the Cocktails, if needed, in order to keep the excess in control. Do Call Ben Leeke to discuss your fears – rest assured he’s done this plenty of times before  – 07590 242526

I had an unforgettable, once in a lifetime party, and it’s mostly thanks to you lot. I hope I can persuade my parents to give me a 21st as well! But honestly, you’re AWESOME at what you do. Thanks man… – Harry Williams

How do we do it?


It was just perfect. We had a totally stress free evening (which we were not expecting with an 18th Birthday Party) as we saw how professionally you addressed any small problems which surfaced during the evening. Altogether a fantastic evening which will be remembered by everyone for many years to come – Tina Leach, Surrey
