Based in Yorkshire but can travel throughout the UK. Kim Hickson’s aim is to make sure that your special occasions are unique and personal to each individual with even bespoke options.

Brief History

Kim Hickson Events was created by the growth of our 3 sister companies, Gauvies Cocktail Club, Cocktail Campers and Vintage Furniture Hire, and an aim to provide a unique and personal service. All three brands have now come under our central KH Events brand and we are growing with demand, adding more services to make your wedding, corporate event or birthday celebration more individual.

We pride ourselves on looking at the finer details of mobile bars from creating you your own bespoke bar menu to creating your own personal wedding reception cocktail. We want our customers to feel that they can come to one person for several services and let us take the pressure of party planning off their minds.

About Kim Hickson

Kim is a born and bred Yorkshire lass who studied a Fashion Marketing degree at the University of Northumbria, giving her a strong background in design and a creative flair. She then went to work in events and hospitality in London for 5 years, working in different sectors that gave her a wide breadth of view services including party planning, bookings, event managing, marketing, PR, venue design and and even a spot of cocktail bar tending in many well established bars. This extensive skill set allows her to see outside the box when customers are looking for something different on their big day.

After moving back to Yorkshire, she wanted to offer a fun (and non pretentious) cocktail & bar service, allowing people to have a good time while learning something new. “I was lucky to have worked in some amazing bars and alongside fab people teaching me that bartenders have a job to create a vibrant and fun atmosphere for customers to come to and relax or party with at the end of a long hard working week. I loved that people were excited to finish a long day to come to our venues for a high five from us, a delicious cocktail and a night of partying. So back in East Yorkshire, I just wanted to create an experience for people to have the same fun as i did making and shaking drinks but for themselves and friends”.

Kim is currently focusing on expanding her business, growing the Kim Hickson Events brand and providing customers with a very memorable, personalised service.

“My main aim of K.H Events was predominately for weddings at first and to pick up on things that some companies may have missed out that would have just made a wow factor on the day. Mobile bars are a massive thing at events and I wanted to create a feeling that guests were in their favourite local, with reasonable prices, good quality local ales, beautiful bar designs and staff that interacted with guests”… Then along came a few caravans and I was inspired by one venue I worked in that had an old caravan rebuilt into the bar, so I refitted Sybil the Caravan as photo booth and Percy as a cocktail mobile bar. Thats where is all started! A few weddings, a handful of festivals and many hen parties and birthdays later, Kim Hickson Events was born – I cant wait to be part of peoples big day and tailor their special occasions to each individual.”
