With venue hire, food and drink, transport and many other services to think about, it is essential that you have a solid budget set aside, ensuring you have enough the allocate to each service.

Venue

Location is something that should be thought about at length, making sure you choose a venue that is appropriate for all staff members.

Sat on misty Essex land this Victorian mansion claims to be the most haunted location in the UK, a tagline that many thrill-seekers find intriguing as the end of October looms.Following a fire in 1939, reports suggesting paranormal activity peaked, with the majority of visitors claiming to feel the presence of the unknown when at the manor.

The most shilling tale from this Essex property is one involving a nun and a monk from the monastery; two people that planned to elope but were caught before doing so. The monk was allegedly beheaded and the nun was buried alive within the walls of Borley Rectory! She is believed to be haunting the property as we speak!

The Jamaica Inn

Built in 1750, the Jamaica Inn was a spot that welcomed weary travellers and smugglers of whisky and tea, a place where people congregated to enjoy the fruits of their criminal activities. Legend tells that whoever stays at the Jamaica Inn will enjoy a host of sinister noises including horses and cartwheels whisking past.

The Village of Pluckley

Pluckley village has over the years gained a reputation for being the most haunted village in Britain, with residents and visitors alike blasting the atmosphere as unnerving.

With around 16 ghost sightings being reported myths include tales of a screaming man, a highwayman who appears at Fright Corner, a schoolmaster found hanged by a group of children and an old woman who simply sits and smokes.

The Tower of London

Tower-of-London

Having been examined by a wealth of paranormal investigators The Tower of London is seldom thought as a light-hearted destination, with many believing the tower to welcome the late Henry VI on the anniversary of his death.

In addition to Henry VI The White Lady is said to often make an appearance, waving at groups of children in a manor that echoes the most disturbing horror film you have ever seen.

Chillingham Castle

Chillingham Castle dates way back to the 12th century, an era well-known for its spooky encounters. Featuring a rather well-kept torture dungeon one cannot help but to feel rushes of macabre when visiting Chillingham Castle, with only the strongest of minds able to complete the organised ghost hunts.

10 Starline Limo Buses Sold at the Coach and Bus Live Show 2015

Yesterday marked the closing day of the Coach and Bus Live Show, one of the largest industry exhibitions of the year. Welcoming some of the biggest names through the NEC doors the show was a complete success, celebrating the latest products and services to hit the UK transport market.

Unveiling new technology, suppliers and coach and bus builders there was a lot of competition, with a variety of businesses to contend with. However, the Starline Limo Bus stole the show, being the loudest, most exiting stand Birmingham has ever seen.

Tej Randeva, sole distributor of these bespoke-made limo buses says:

‘We were incredibly humbled by the amount of attention and compliments our buses received on the stand, especially from coach operators.’Being a market that coach operators are seldom to get involved in Starline was shocked to see how many coach companies wanted to add an exciting element to their fleet, offerings something a little different than the standard coach or minibus.

Show 3

Exceeding expectations – 10 Starline Limo Buses Sold!

‘Before the show we set out with a vision to sell one bus, with the show being more about getting our name out there in the industry’.

Selling 10 buses in total the Starline bosses were overwhelmed by the demand displayed, with coach builder Gary Johns putting this success down to the buses’ elaborate nature.

‘When building the Starlines we wanted to create a vehicle that could be hired for a wealth of occasions. With our first two prototypes being extremely in demand for weddings, hen dos, stag does, proms, birthdays as well as corporate events we knew we had created a vehicle that operators would want to invest in’.

Selling a bus within the first 30 minutes of the show the exhibition started as it meant to go on, with publications including Coach and Bus Week and Route One Magazine eager to climb inside the two Starlines on display. Enjoying a complimentary cocktail and a goodie bag packed with treats the stand was quickly branded ‘the party stand’ with professionals from all types of businesses intrigued to learn more about the buses.

Transport Broker Group scheme

Although the buses basically sold themselves it was the hire scheme being offered that got people excited, with every purchaser getting guaranteed £10,000 worth of free work from Transport Broker Group, but more importantly an agency approval with Limo Broker, Coach Broker & Cars for Stars.

‘The main gamble with investing in a new vehicle like this is not getting the work, this is why buying a Starline is a unique purchase, getting the support you need to get the vehicles out on the road’ Tej Randeva continues.

Rolls Royce Introduce Bespoke ‘History of Rugby’ Wraith

With all UK rugby fans making their way out of the woodwork it is understandable why brands are trying to capture our attention, creating rugby-themed products in order to entice us into a purchase. The latest company to do so is surprisingly Rolls Royce, introducing the ‘Wraith – History of Rugby’ edition.

Celebrating the illustrious history of the game, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is extremely excited to unveil this unique creation. Made in the Bespoke Design Studio in Goodwood the car is quintessentially British, with various features echoing the feel of the sporting spirit.

Features

The first change is to the exterior, adorned in “English White” paint. This change is said to represent the Rugby jerseys worn by the English rugby team.

Continuing Rolls-Royce’s reputation for  personalisation, the Wraith’s signature shoulder-line is made the key signifier by a hand-applied coachline in deep green, featuring an English rose motif in red. Each headrest of the car features an embroidered red rose also, with Hotspur Red spilled onto the dashboard accent panel, seat as well as the door piping.

James Crichton, Regional Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Europe, commented,

“This truly unique Wraith emphasises vision and individuality, inspired by the role it plays within a team. While the game of rugby may have been inspired by the act of one individual, it is one of the world’s most popular team sports. In a similar vein, this one car represents the efforts of the team of engineers and craftspeople working at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, producing the most individual motor cars in the world.”

Book a Rolls Royce to get to the game

If you are considering something more luxurious than a coach or minibuses then we at Limo Broker can arrange for Rolls Royce Wraiths, Phantoms and Ghosts to chauffeur you to and from the stadium. Call us today and learn more about our Rugby World Cup transport services.
