Is there a Doctor in the House?

Dartingtonhall medics


What do you get when you combine a 14th century hall in Devon, 185 medical students halfway through their training & a photobooth? Answer: A bunch of doctors-to-be confirming all theories that laughter really is the best medicine! 

If you have ever had the good fortune to visit the impressive Dartington Hall Estate near Totnes in Devon you will appreciate its size and the slight difficulty we had in tracking down the correct building to park up and unload the photo booth. But, worth the all the effort as we found it to be another fantastic building to add to our already totally awesome collection of venues!

Last Saturday night we were booked to deliver the photo booth to The Halfway Ball for the hardworking medical students who attend the Peninsular College of Medicine & Dentistry which was held at the medieval Great Hall at Dartington Hall. We love a bit of historical background, here at Yellow booth and were in awe to find our newest venue was once the home to Sir Arthur Champernowne – Queen Elizabeth I’s Vice Admiral of the West and to his descendants for over 300 years. Today, we’ve discovered it is the home of the Dartington Hall charitable trust for the arts, sustainability and justice holding educational activities throughout the year.

Moving forward several hundred years, our medical photo booth visitors were celebrating being halfway through their training endeavours and looking very glamorous too! Our shiny black party booth didn’t stop until the DJ played his last tune and everyone was carted off by the busload back to their beds. What an illustrious night – thank you Rebecca for booking us for your spectacular ball!  Caz & Laurence from Yellow booth x


Saucy fun in Worcester! Fancy dress high jinx caught on camera!





Our host ‘Mrs Browns-Boys’  (holding Jessie) with her team!


If ever there was a night in need of a party to cheer things up, it was rainy old last Thursday night! We took a trip over to Worcester for the Imperial Tobacco party at the prestigious Park Hall near Blakedown where we were booked by Rachel who we met at Gary’s 50th Aloha house party in St Clether.


Remembering Gary’s great Aloha houseparty in St Clether in Cornwall 3rd January 2014 ….



Fancy dress competition winner, Lu the Whoopie Cushion!


We brought along all our props (as well as Jessie, the green inflatable donkey) but the Imperial Tobacco team were ahead of the game with their own fancy dress costumes! There were the bunny girls, the naughty school girls, the ladies footie team, a green Billy Bunter, a pirate of the Caribbean, the onesy posse (very nice! a firm fave of our’s), a giant whoopie cushion and our host ‘Mrs Browns-Boys’ herself!


Park Hall

Our lovely venue, Park Hall in Worcester.


When we arrived, the Imperial team building meeting was in full swing – so keen to keep a low profile, we had a bit of a tip-toe and a ‘nosey’ round the luxurious Park Hall! We thought we’d arrived on the set of Downton Abbey and half expected Lady Mary to glide down the sweeping staircase. Wow! This was set to be a house party with a difference!



The naughty school girls – uncontrollable! The first to run riot in the booth.


9 times out of 10, we are asked to start up earlier than has been booked and previously arranged. Our feeling is, if the booth is ready early it might as well be on and enjoyed by the guests. Before we could say “We declare the photo booth open!” – in the blink of an eye, in swooped our mates, the naughty school girls and hot on their heels came the bunny girls. The thing about a photo booth, it’s so much fun, party goers just can’t wait to say “cheese”!

To cut a long story short, it was a crazy lively night! Half way through a curry van parked up and opened up its hatch to serve us hungry souls with a tasty meal of madras, korma, balti or tikka massala with rice, a naan and/or chips. It went down a treat with everyone – including us!

Thanks for booking Yellowbooth, Rachel and all at Imperial Tobacco!

Such a great party and really nice people – your photos tell a few tales!
