88 Events began life unofficially in the early 1990's when Sheila Samuels began to get the party planning bug.

After a few years on the dinner party and family gatherings circuit, Sheila decided to take the plunge professionally.

In 1994, she quit her retail business selling high-end children's fashion and 88 Events was born.

Fast forward to the present day and 88 Events has grown into one of the leading event design and event hire companies in the UK employing over 25 permanent members of staff.

Sheila retired from the day-to-day operations of 88 Events in early 2017. Her son and business partner Marc now runs the business ably assisted by his wife, Kasia.

What‘s the name all about?

When Sheila first decided to embark on a new journey into the events industry, she worked from a converted bathroom in her then family home.

The company grew very quickly until it took over most of the house and commercial premises were required.

You’ve probably guessed it by now but the house number where it all started was of course no.88!
