About Us - Quirky Group

The Quirky Group is made up of several quirky brands that create unique experiences, events and communications.

We started our business in April 2015 running themed pop-up bars for events, parties and festivals. We started with a mobile pop-up Bicycle Bar created from a rescued vintage butcher's bicycle. The business expanded rapidly as demand grew.  We added more themed pop-up bars, calling ourselves Quirky Bars. We then expanded into designing and creating event spaces for other companies and called this part of the business Quirky Builds

 

Our latest creation is a Horsebox Bar converted from a 1960s Rice Beaufort horse trailer. We preserved many of the original features including the hoof-trodden floorboards and the iconic Rice badge, and an environmentally friendly solar panel has been added to its roof.

 

About Our Project

We've fallen in love with these stylish horse trailers and their immense versatility. They are compact, but have excellent headroom and sufficient space for a multitude of purposes. We are soon to begin our second conversion of another Rice Beaufort horse trailer into a Sleeping Pod for a Glamp Site in Somerset, for which we already have an order.

Now its time to move onto our third conversion. We have some fantastic ideas in the pipeline, for example, converting Horseboxes into small pop-up galleries, restaurants, barbers shops, offices and photo-booths. The list and the opportunities are endless,  but the cash flow isn't.. not yet anyway.

 

Why are we Crowdfunding?

We do 95% of our work in-house so we manage costs carefully, but further funding would allow us to fund design and production in order to fulfill more orders and requests.

Successful funding will accelerate our third Horsebox conversion.. turning it into either another Sleeping Pod or an Event Space. Exactly what that space is may in fact depend on the feeback we get, or it might even be decided by you, as one of our Rewards is the creation of a bespoke conversion.. perhaps a quirky office, pop-up shop or gallery?! 

All funds raised will help speed up our growth, so we have a notional target of £1000 but we are hoping to raise significantly more than this. This will help fund design work, the renting of a bigger workshop, and the purchase of more  tools. We are also really keen to use this opportunity to promote what we do and to get feedback, as we recognise this site is a great way of testing ideas and getting new ones. 

 

Rewards

Our bars and conversions are all extremely high quality and stylish and often come with a vintage twist.

We wanted our rewards to be equally special. Through a rather unique relationship our rewards include the exclusive offer of two different styles of Anya Hindmarch bag, as the perfect manifestation of Quirky Group's vintage style and premium approach.

 

Both styles of these wash bags were exclusively created for British Airways’ Concorde Collection by the UK’s leading accessories designer, Anya Hindmarch.

These limited edition bags which originally sold for £65 are no longer produced by Anya Hindmarch. The Concorde Collection was created to celebrate 27 years of commercial supersonic flight from 1976 – 2003. These Anya Hindmarch bags were designed exclusively as part of that collection.

Anya Hindmarch is an award-winning British designer of handbags, shoes and accessories. Her designs are popular with film stars and celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller, Madonna, Claudia Schiffer and Reese Witherspoon.

Both bags comes in their original black box which displays the Anya Hindmarch logo in white. The box is still sealed within its original protective plastic covering. The wash bags do not have any contents.
