Brittle Bone Society

Photo Booth Hire Thame Oxon

Our green screen photo booth was tailored for a Great Gatsby themed charity ball on Saturday to raise money for the Brittle Bone Society (www.brittlebone.org). Lots of money raised for a great cause.

The Brittle Bone Society is the sole organisation set up to address the needs of people born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The Brittle Bone Society wants a world in which the needs of people in the UK and the Republic of Ireland living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta are understood, respected and fully met.

The Brittle Bone Society work towards improving the quality of life for people diagnosed with OI in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, providing advice, signposting and information, providing financial support for wheelchairs and equipment and raising awareness of the condition.  They also support and work with specialist healthcare professionals and recently began exploring the possibility of working with other rare bone groups (X-linked Hypophosphatemia, Fibrous Dysplasia, HPP)

The event was held at the Spread Eagle Hotel (www.spreadeaglethame.co.uk) in Thame, Oxfordshire.

The Spread Eagle Hotel has graced the heart of the historic market town of Thame since the 16th Century. The Grade I listed hotel is nestled amongst the artisan butchers, bakers, delicatessens and teashops that line the charming town centre, which is used as a filming location for ITV’s Midsummer Murders. During its colourful history, The Spread Eagle has played host to many historic figures such as King Charles II, and writers such as Evelyn Waugh and John Fothergill (An Innkeepers Diary).

From the exterior, the hotel is instantly recognisable by its 30ft original sign depicting The Spread Eagle crest that has welcomed travellers for over a century. The hotel retains its sense of heritage and personality on the inside, where a meeting room named The Cockpit can be seen next to the entrance. This room was historically used for cockfights, but now provides a sophisticated space accommodating up to 8 people for private dinners or meetings.

The adjacent bar area is stylish and inviting, with tastefully quirky furniture. Silver and taupe armchairs are clustered around coffee tables supported by antiquarian books, while high-wing back dining chairs sit elegantly on the light oak-wood flooring. An oversize silver knife and fork sculpture is suspended above the restaurant, which serves quality food including breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

The hidden gem of this quirky retreat is its surprisingly extensive banqueting hall with its own private entrance and substantial parking, located at the rear of the hotel.  This separate annex, clad in beautiful ivy, houses a large function suite seating up to 200 guests. Complete with its own bar, private cloakrooms and separate kitchen, it is the largest venue in the area.

The 35 guestrooms are reached by a series of higgledy-piggledy staircases with a maze of corridors and black baroque carpets that add to the character and charm of the hotel.  Once reached, the guestrooms are tastefully decorated in a romantic style with four-poster beds and vintage furniture. Modern amenities such as flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities and sleek modern en-suites bring the rooms up-to-date for the 21 Century traveller. The hotel offers a choice of 3 spectacular suites. The stunning Hayloft Suite was once a real Hayloft, and features vaulted Tudor style ceilings with dark wood beams. The dramatic furniture includes a silver and purple chaise longue and mirrored dressing table, while an extravagant stand-alone bathtub adds a spectacular feel to the suite.

Guests can roam around the quaint town of Thame with its thatched roofs, renowned farmers markets and pretty pubs.  Nearby attractions include Oxford – the city of dreaming spires, Blenheim Palace, and the Silverstone.
