We were delighted to be back at Studio 434 this month, working on an event for a Private Equity client.

Created and owned by businessman Rodger Dudding, Studio434 is one of the most extensive, privately owned classic vehicle collections in the UK.

Today Studio 434 is more than a home for a cherished car collection. Now divided into two buildings, it is a museum, a secure vehicle storage facility, a classic vehicle hire company, a film and photographic studio centre and a unique event venue. The venue features two refurbished double-storey event spaces with wooden floors and views of the car collection through a glass wall. Event organisers can specify the vehicles they’d like on display or even provide their own entertainment through the glass.

It’s perfect for a dinner event with a difference and a must for any car enthusiast.

First Network worked closely with the venue to provide dramatic lighting designed to fully highlight the beauty of the collection. A full audio system ensured that speakers and music were crystal clear.

What started as one man’s private car collection fifty years ago, is now conservatively valued at £40 million and includes the world’s largest private collection of Aston Martins.  This year the theme of the dinner was ‘100 Years of Bentley’.

It was a real treat for motor enthusiasts, both clients and crew alike and we look forward to working at this unique venue again in the future. Many thanks to everyone who worked hard to ensure the success of the event.
