6 things you won’t want to miss at this year’s Stranger than Summer

There is just under a week to go until the industry party of the year! Stranger than Summer is back this Thursday 7th June and NABS and the Crazed Curator cannot wait to welcome you to #TheCrazedCollection.

From Pop Art pouts to projector cube posing, here’s a taster of what you can expect at our arty party, which promises to be our most Instagrammable event yet.

1. A photobooth with a difference.

Photobooth props are so 2017. This year it’s all about the immersive photo experience.

At The Crazed Collection you’ll get much more than a photo strip to take away – you will become a piece of performance art.

When you enter the black out projector cube you can choose from a feast of imagery to be projected onto you.

Your projector poses will then be immortalised in video or gif.

We’ll be photographing and filming throughout the night so don’t forget to follow us @NABS_UK on Twitter and Instagram, or visit our Facebook page to see the photos.

Make sure you share your masterpieces using #StrangerThanSummer #TheCrazedCollection


2. Bid for a piece of the Crazed Curator’s Collection

Fancy a suite for you and 24 of your closest friends to watch Michael McIntyre do his thing?

How about watching the tennis ATP World Tour semi-finals from the comfort of your very own box?

From a holiday to France, to mindfulness workshops and Barry’s Bootcamp classes, there is something for every budget in The Crazed Curator’s Collection.

The auction is open now so get bidding! All money raised will support NABS, the industry’s support organisation, which helps people to thrive at work.


3. Get your face on at the Pop Art Parlour

If your outfit isn’t quite a work of art, don’t fear, as a team of make-up artists will be on hand to help transform your look.

Head down to the Pop Art Parlour where you can indulge in a Lichtenstein-inspired lip or a temporary tattoo.

Don’t forget to share your new look with us #StrangerThanSummer #TheCrazedCollection


4. Spend a fiver and win a car

Probably the best raffle in adland, Stranger than Summer’s raffle tickets are just £5 and the top prize is a Fiat 500.

You can buy your tickets during the evening and please come ready to dig deep throughout the night.

All money raised will help NABS improve the wellbeing of people working in our industry.


5. Watch art come to life in front of your eyes

On The Crazed Curator’s guest list will be one of the UK’s top graffiti artists.

They will create a specially-commissioned Stranger Than Summer artwork which will come to life on the night.


6. The celebrity headline act

It’s always the most eagerly-awaited part of the evening. In the past, Craig David’s made us Rewind the clock, Blue made us All Rise, Atomic Kitten made us feel Whole Again and Jamelia made us all feel like Superstars.

Who will be gracing the stage in 2018??? Well we can’t tell you that, but we promise you won’t want to miss this!


A huge thanks to all of our sponsors; Quantcast, Facebook, UM, Astus and Taxi Media.
