Message from Doub7e Seven’s Roop Mullins (Roop is an entertainer, event expert and a director of Doub7e Seven Events Ltd):
“On a personal note, I had the most enjoyable Christmas of events ever in 2016 and I can’t wait to put my experiences in place for this year’s programme of parties.
I worked at venues ranging from boutique hotels to major chains to golf clubs last month.
I provided the following range of entertainment for the 2016 Christmas party season:
- I ran a Fun casino table meet and greet entertainment
- My Christmas table quiz for the meal section was very popular as a party energiser
- ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Bingo (I delivered this for clients who liked the idea of a quick bingo energiser before the disco – guests listen out for songs for their bingo card (instead of numbers)! This is just an option because it isn’t for more sophisticated winter wonderland parties)
- DJ Roop – the best disco with festive classics and superb light show
Many thanks for taking a look at our diary below. We have tons of ideas for Christmas! Do let me know how best I can assist to make your Christmas party even more special?
Very best regards,
Roop – 0114-2362 874 / 07966-060 777″
Christmas diary 2016:
Christmas started early for us this year. It was Black Friday and Amazon decided to treat their warehouse staff to entertainment provided by Doub7e Seven. The entertainment included The Swinging Santas (Santa suit wearing musicians) playing festive tunes. At the same time, our Games Masters provided space invaders, Batak and pinball machines for the amusement of the shop floor staff. We criss-crossed across the country from Doncaster to Swansea to ensure entertainment coverage at a number of Amazon sites.
Hotels including Belton Woods, The Copthorne Sheffield and the boutique Feversham Arms used Doub7e Seven for their disco supply. Often these hotels have corporate clients who ask the venue to add an extra dimension to their Christmas party night. This is where Doub7e Seven’s event support comes in handy for hotel sales teams.
Spear and Jackson, for instance, were treated to Singing Waiters, a personalised ice sculpture (vodka louge), arcade games plus one of the best party band in the country.
Bresmed are another company who return to Doub7e Seven each year for their annual Christmas party requirements. Bresmed and Spear and Jackson were two of the many companies who placed their business on a busy 9th December with Doub7e Seven. We supplied for Bresmed a glitter dance floor, a wholesome voals act singing Christmas material through dinner and a sparkling disco – plus a fun casino for the non-dancers amongst the guests.
The 9th December was Double Seven’s busiest event date of the year. We coordinated magicians, stage backdrops, illuminated event furniture, DJ’s, musicians, croupiers and lots of theming and props to all parts of the country.
The conference centre at Loughborough advertise their Christmas party nights by inviting people to buy tickets for a multi layered evening – with attractions including the Doub7e Seven photo booth as well as a traditional party meal and disco. Loughborough book their event solutions from Doub7e Seven for every Friday and Saturday in December as well as for a big New Year’s Eve party.
A new band called The Sinatra Swingers where added Doub7e Seven’s New Year’s Eve party roster this year. They were chosen by Tankersley Manor (Q Hotel). The Sinatra Swingers tick a lots of the boxes for the venue including sophisticated Rat Pack material and by addding black tie elegance from the beginning of the drinks reception.
Caricaturists, costume performers, dance troupes, the fun casino and DJs were all popular bookings by Double Seven clients for Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties in 2016.
Christmas is for children and Doub7e Seven like to recognise the importance of this. Every year we provide unique add-ons to events via the supply of story tellers, children’s games, Santa character actors, UV glow discos, props, theming…

Two highlights this year were the ‘Breakfast With Santa’ events at The Copthorne Sheffield and the awards party to recognise the high achieving children of The Foster Care Association.
Roop is a Double Seven entertainer and director who brings 20 years of experience to the table. Venues, universities and corporates tap into Roop’s encyclopedic knowledge of the event industry. For instance, Roop particularly enjoyed a party for the European elevator company Orona on the 10th December. Roop provided entertainment at International Festivals the previous summer and he drew on this experience to provide a quiz and a disco for Orona – the content was in Spanish and English. The evening concluded with an amazing disco of Euro pop, Christmas hits and salsa dance music which created a buzzing, energetic dance floor.
Sytner BMW / Mini were another company with a very broad spectrum of party goers. Mechanics, sales directors, Admin staff etc were guests at this party; this presented a difficult challenge to provide entertainment to appeal to such a diverse spectrum of tastes, profiles and age groups. This is where an experienced DJ is essential and DJ Roop loves nothing better than the challenge of creating the hottest dancefloor in town.
Another party which Roop personalised for his client was the Christmas event at Moortown Golf Club. Members of the golf club queued up to perform in a “Britain’s Got Talent” theme night. Roop provided technical support including microphones, lighting, costume assistance and screen technology. The evening was a magical mixture of home grown talent and a professional influence from Roop.
Take a look at our website, social media and the videos below. We enjoy providing a unique twist to every party and we keep our clients informed of the latest red hot event trends with via posts and publicity.
