by Tipsy Parties in United Kingdom

Hi, I'm Jem and I run Tipsy Parties  with my fiance Russ, we started in 2011 offering innovative nationwide mobile services based around alcohol including cocktail classes, beer tastings & gin tastings.  Our parties are great for bringing people together and creating memories.  With the lockdown we can't trade at the moment and we have no money coming in.

We are looking to pre-sell our services to help us through this hard time & any help would be massively appreciated.  We are offering discounts off future bookings as a reward and thank you for any pledges made.

Maybe you could have a big celebration once this is over?  We would love to help you celebrate that!

We love what we do and we like to think we are very good at it.  We have hundreds of happy customers who leave us great feedback on Reviews.co.uk  and Trustpilot

We are a couple (engaged to be married)  who run Tipsy Parties which we co-founded in 2011 following our lifelong love of cocktails, parties and people having a great time in general.  We own 100 percent of the business and we have never received any investment or outside assistance.  As small business owners we have worked tirelessly to grow our business organically putting in 70 hours each a week and not taking any holidays for the first 6 years of trading. Last year we took on our first office based employee Sara, we also provide nationwide work for over 100 bartenders.

Due to the coronavirus we have received hundreds of cancellations. We received more cancellations in just one day in March than in the previous 9 years of business.  As our business is seasonal we have most likely lost virtually an entire years income especially if the lockdown continues and we lose all the summer months.  

Since the 18th March we had to lay off our Sara who was later furloughed thankfully due to the job retention scheme.  We the owners have been working for nothing since the 18th March to facilitate date changes, respond to customers and process cancellations.

We have one full time admin employee but hundreds of contractors who rely on us for work and we hope to get through this time and carry on getting parties "tipsy" for years to come.
