The team

To build the best team capable of running any size of event, we’ve borrowed some thinking from cocktail making – it boils down to chemistry and the mix. Every member of the Hickory Bars team has been handpicked for the wealth of experience they bring.

Hickory have delivered bars for a number of top clients:

  • The ‘Botanical Garden’ at the Royal Highland Show, a four day event with over 6,000 visitors.
  • The VIP drinks area at the prestigious Paul Lawrie Match Play at Archerfield Links.
  • The VIP drinks area at Scotland’s International Airshow.
  • Wedding bars at numerous fixed site venues including Eskmills Venue, Dunglass Estate, Borthwick Castle and several National Trust for Scotland properties.
  • The Red Bull UK wakeboarding championships at Fox Lake.
  • VIP themed bars for KL Events.

With over 20 years’ experience organising large-scale festivals and brand activations, as well as high profile wedding bars and private parties you can be sure of a memorable occasion.
