Josie da Bank and Ziggy Gilsenan will offer consultation services in experiential, marketing and live event briefs for event planners within the corporate, public and private event spaces. They promise a cutting-edge agency inspired by the artistry of Bestival.

The pair, who have previously worked on brand experiences for Replay, Boden, SSE and Cocio, will draw more than ten years' experience in the live arena to launch the agency.

The House of Bestival will also offer a hire service for venues and bars, signage and scenery, props and centrepieces, furniture and lighting. It previously supplied BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend with 20-foot high shooting stars, festoons and bunting, and worked to deliver Chic's album launch party at the Roundhouse in London.

Gilsenan said: "Our ethos is about developing an original, killer concept and turning it into an epic consumer experience that becomes the centrepiece to a truly effective marketing campaign or an unforgettable event."

Da Bank added: "Our creative prop house is a treasure trove of Bestival magic that clients now have access to. Likewise, we are also taking on briefs to create original, innovative props for unique events, inspired by the vision and artistry of Bestival."
