Hi I’m Gary Peters
As an event planner, I don’t believe in impossible. From the initial idea to the final flourishes, we’re here to delight your guests and deliver the ultimate Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration and, having grown up within the Jewish community, I’m uniquely positioned to understand the religious and cultural nuances unique to Jewish events.
What’s My Background?
I set up my award winning agency, Evolve Events, over 20 years ago. During that time I was asked by Westminster Synagogue to help them use their stunning Victorian townhouse as a venue for events – you may know it as the beautiful Kent House Knightsbridge. I’ve produced countless Bar and Bat Mitzvah events at this venue along with celebrations at leading London venues.
During this time I’ve learnt that planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah takes time and great organisation. There are so many different things to think about; finding a venue, styling it, briefing a caterer, sourcing memorable entertainment and handling the budget. But there’s only 24 hours in a day and you’ve got so many other things on your to-do list that are nothing to do with the celebration, that it can be a stressful experience. That’s why people turn to me and my trusted team to take responsibility for all the organisation and production.
How I approach an event
Having lived in New York during my twenties running restaurants, I’m passionate about great customer service and have bought this ethos to my team. We pride ourselves on solving problems and providing creative solutions. We’re known for our personal service and love to chat about all things event related. We’ll spend time with you and get a thorough understanding of what you want your celebration to achieve before creating a proposal that brings all your ideas to life.
How to make a Bar or Bat Mitzvah unique
One of the most common things we get asked when producing a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is how do I make it different from everyone else and what can I do to make it memorable? That’s why I set up Pop Up Bar Mitzvah.
