Private Drama Events, a creator of luxury experiences, today announced its appointment by Belmond to create ‘The Party of a lifetime’ on board the Venice Simplon-Orient Express.

The party will be a two-day event, taking place from 27-29 March 2020.

Guests will begin their adventure at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice where they will be invited to a 1920s-style party at a hidden location.  The following day, guests will board the Venice Simplon-Orient Express at Santa Lucia Station in Venice to depart for a night of surprise entertainment and impromptu performances.

Private Drama Events will curate a party to welcome in a new decade and season for the train. As the journey travels through Italy, Austria, Switzerland and France, guests will bring the 1920s to life.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is made up of 17 original 1920s carriages, each of which has its own unique history.  Each carriage played a part in the trains of the era that pioneered the way for international travellers to cross borders in style.

Creative director of Private Drama Events, Adam Blackwood, said: “Over the past 20 years, we have been fortunate to produce events in the world’s most glamorous, iconic and prestigious venues but nothing compares to Venice Simplon-Orient Express!  Steeped in history and nostalgia, the train continues its enduring appeal for travellers across generations. We are excited to bring the story of Venice Simplon-Orient Express to life through a fully immersive, interactive showstopper that excites all the senses.  Private Drama Events is thrilled to be working in partnership with Belmond to create this once-in-a-lifetime experience for its guests.” 

Divisional sales and marketing director for Trains & Cruises, Belmond, Yann Guezennec, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Private Drama Events to welcome in a new decade on the Venice Simplon-Orient Express.  They have created an experience that will transport the luxury traveller back in time to the exuberance of the 1920s, paying homage and celebrating the nostalgia and history of the world’s most stylish train journey.”

Prices for the two-night ‘The Party with Belmond Hotel Cipriani’ journey from Venice to London starts from £3,760 per person.
