In an ever-changing and often transient industry, it is important to be secure in your working partners, and as the quotes below attest, Wilde Ones has proved itself again and again.
“We worked with Wilde Ones for the first time on our 2010 traffic free day. At all stages of the planning process they were incredibly efficient and easy to work with. In fact they were by far the best production company I have worked with in 25 years of organising events in Oxford Street. I would not hesitate to recommend their work.”
New West End Company
“Wasserman Media group have worked with Wilde Ones for a couple of years. We have constantly been impressed with their professionalism, attention to detail and ability to be flexible in challenging situations. They bring innovitate and achievable solutions to the table. We always look forward to working with them.”

“Organising an event for over 30,000 people has a number of issues but with Dean from Wilde Ones in your team it was a lot smoother operation. His experience and advice was invaluable demonstrating a practicable approach which was a godsend. Top production company.”
Brighton Pride 2012
“Words do not seem enough to say thank you for all your efforts towards the success of the event yesterday. You really were absolutely amazing. It is truly the most organised event we have ever had in the street and that is entirely down to you and your team – who incidentally I thought were lovely. Please pass on our appreciation to them. I still can’t work out how you did it so well in only three weeks!!! So you deserve all the praise you get. Excellent.”
Regent Street Association
“The Oxford Street Christmas Lights Switch-On is our biggest brand moment on the calendar and so is by far our most high profile event of the year. Having worked with Dean and the team at Wilde Ones for several years, we’ve come to really rely on their insider knowledge of the event, the planning permissions, the location and the logistics – no easy feat when it comes to Europe’s biggest shopping street!
The team have been invaluable in the planning process and have gone beyond the call of duty to ensure all permissions are approved by the vast number of parties involved, all whilst working under a great deal of additional pressure due to the last-minute nature of the gig with many key components such as talent only being confirmed days prior!
We would highly recommend Dean and his team for their professionalism, passion and ability to get the job done!”
New West End Company
“Wilde Ones have been an integral part of Brighton Pride for well over a decade. The expertise and experience they bring to the event is second to none. They have a degree of professionalism rarely seen so consistently in production companies.
The saying the “the devil’s in the detail” just about sums Dean up. He plans every single aspect with a military approach resulting in an event that runs like clockwork. Only he and his team can allow for every single generator, toilet, marquee and fence panel to be planned for and executed so precisely, within budget and any time constraints.
Wilde Ones can produce any event, large or small, that quite simply, works.”
Operations Manager 2005-2007
“Working with Wilde Ones has been an absolute joy. Its team is made up of friendly approachable job professionals who seem to be able to fix problems before they even arise.
They brought together all the contractors in such a way that everyone felt like they were part of an efficient team that could be relied and depended upon. We spent 100% of our time focusing on our work and without having to worry about anything else on site.
Wilde Ones turned what was logistically one of our most complex events of the year into the smoothest and easiest.”

“I first met Dean some 18 months ago when I purchased Alistage and he was one of the inherited clients
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Dean Parker and Wilde Ones over the last 18 months on some of the UK’s most high profile and impressive events, including Brighton Pride, Gumball Rally and both the Regent Street and Oxford Street Christmas Lights switch on.
Dean is a superb project manager, calm and well organised, and has a fantastic disposition which makes working with him not only easy but fun for every member of our team.”
“It was an absolute pleasure working with Dean and his team from Wilde Ones on Brighton Pride last year. The production team worked closely with the organisers so that communication was seamless throughout the planning & operational stages. On site, all bar & catering locations were clearly marked out ensuring no delays for any subcontractors or caterers. Our operations team were made to feel welcome and a part of the team from the outset and no request was too big for the Wilde Ones team on site. Wilde Ones is a fantastic company and a joy to work with.”
“Dean at Wilde Ones came highly recommended to Gumball 3000 having executed a number of events in the area previously.
Dean and his team took on board an array of requests, and goals starting a year in advance of one of the largest experiential events that Gumball 3000 had ever hosted. With the closure of one of London’s most famous roads, came a series of challenges to overcome as well as many expectations to manage, all of which were achieved with constant communication and updates.
I have no doubt that it was down to the scrupulous advance planning, constant communication and faultless live event management that resulted in the event being viewed, and praised on a global level. Gumball 3000 would be delighted to work with Dean again in the future and will happily recommend the services of Wilde Ones Events to other brands.”

“Working with Wilde Ones is always an absolute pleasure, particularly as their dedication and attention to detail is second to none. Wilde Ones ability to ‘ make it look so simple’ through working methodically & creatively from concept to successful event delivery is a real skill all rolled together by the personable & experienced staff. Having worked with countless production professionals over the years, Wilde Ones stand head and shoulders above the competition.”
AD Health & Safety
“As an LED Screen provider we have worked with Wilde Ones on a number of occasions. The Wilde Ones team are always extremely thorough with pre-event communications but it is the implementation of the information that makes them a delight to work with. Once on-site, the Wilde Ones production team are totally up to speed with suppliers movements/requirements. Their attention to detail and careful planning enables us to work in an efficient timely manner. From arriving one-site to the final moments of strike day the Wilde Ones team are professional, proficient and are extraordinarily well organised which makes everyone’s job easier.
We look forward to working with Wilde Ones in the future.”
LED Dry Hire Ltd
“The two things that I always feel set Wilde Ones apart from their competition are that firstly that Dean and his team make you feel valued and part of the team. One of the ways they achieve this is through understanding what we need to do and how we need to do it. This leads nicely to my second point, their level of understanding of the industry means that the brief and specification for the job is accurate, they know what to ask the other suppliers and exhibitors and so the end result is that we get all the info we need in a way that works for us.
I would say that over the last half decade we have developed a close mutual respect, understanding and trust which means that on the rare occasion a problem or glitch on the day occurs, as can sometimes happen, it is easily resolved and the ultimate client may not even be aware that there was ever an issue. Perfect!”
The Powerline (Entertainments) Ltd.
“I’ve worked with Dean Parker/Wilde Ones for over 6 years and he always gives me all the correct information when I need it; his production scheduling and site plans are exemplary; all of which makes my job easier. Dean and his team are always a pleasure to work with”

“..thank you for all the great planning and organisation. If every event we went to was as well organised as this one, it would make our job a lot easier!”
“Event Crew Solutions have worked with Wilde Ones on many events over the past year. Dean has superb knowledge of the events industry, and an excellent attention to detail, which is shown in the site drawings and plans he produces. This ability is displayed on the one day events that Dean manages on Regent St., which filters through to all contractors, enabling them to get in and get their work done efficiently. We at Event Crew Solutions have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dean Parker and Wilde Ones for any other event organisers may have.”

“For the last six years Wilde Ones has worked closely with us and are an essential part of the production team. They control our catering and marketing areas with the utmost professionalism. Indeed it would be difficult to imagine producing Pride London without Wilde Ones on both the pre-festival management of stallholders and caterers, and on site production. My team and I highly value their continual help, advice and valuable experience.”
Chair of Pride London
“I have known Wilde Ones for approximately 15 years and have found them to be one of the most professional production companies around. Attention to detail, problem solving and making things happen are their forté. Nothing is too much trouble and their efficient and fun approach is refreshing. They are a pleasure to work with.”
Director of Leisure Safety, Capita Symonds
President of the National Outdoor Events Association
“The effortless professionalism of Rebekah and her friendly knowledgeable team means working at an event organised by Wilde Ones is always a pleasure. Having been at the mercy of other less organised event managers, it’s good to know that here is someone with their finger on the pulse at all times. Wilde Ones are proof that a great day starts with exceptional planning and management.”
