Ever wondered if you can fit a double bass and a drum kit in a hot air balloon? Well, you can and we’ve done it.

If you’re looking for a PR event which is truly out of this world (well almost!), you’ve landed in the right place. Our balloons are the perfect platform for a unique press or media event.

We’ve done everything in our balloons from world-record breaking concerts at 5,000ft to fashion photo-shoots. We’re the biggest commercial hot air balloon ride company in the UK so if it’s possible to do it in a balloon, then we’ll make it happen.

We’ve organised events for Virgin Radio & Sony BMG, Radio 1 and Future Music Magazine.

The likes of the BBC, ITV and the Discovery Channel have filmed from our hot air balloons because of the fantastic perspective it offers. English Heritage once even let us fly a Virgin balloon over Stonehenge!

Quite simply, nothing grabs more attention, more cost-effectively than an advertising hot air balloon. That’s why so many major brands use them as a key part of their promotional strategies every year.

We have commissioned and managed advertising balloons for clients such as Harvey’s Bristol Cream, for which we secured national & regional TV, radio and press coverage at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.

We provided and managed the Virgin Money balloon each year at the Virgin Money London Marathon, seen by tens of thousands of runners and spectators.

We also work with the UK’s leading specialist in managing advertising balloons, who fly them for the likes of Pimms, Nokia, Volvo and Holiday Inn.

As we buy more hot air balloons than anyone else in the UK, we have a unique relationship with the major balloon manufacturers and can negotiate excellent rates on your behalf.

We have the best partners, pilots, crews and contacts in the industry and the infrastructure to fly, manage and store your balloon.

So, whether you want to use a balloon as part of an above-the-line ad campaign or for the ultimate in branded corporate hospitality, we’ll be your authority on how to harness the potential of advertising balloons.
