Holiday Heist


Dropbox Holiday Heist was a holiday party for over 400 guests in the RDS in 2019 which was a 1920’s theme bank heist theme.

Working closely with the events team in Dropbox, we created an incredible celebration for their end of year Holiday party.


Celebrate Dropboxers & their year’s accomplishments by transporting them to a world of gangsters & molls, (anti)prohibition, entertainment & activities.


Our live team & studio curated themed activities & fun at the event to ensure the concept lived throughout the event from start to finish.

A 1920’s theme is often considered to be overdone and with good reason, but as we were entering the 2020’s we knew we could bring some novelty to a long-established event theme. From the outset, we knew this event had to be different. Working closely with our creative team in Pluto, we created a series of pre-event engaging activities to get everyone in the mood for the Heist. We devised a puzzle which upon completion would present guests with a phone number.

Upon dialling that phone number, the guests were sent to a voicemail which shared special instructions regarding accessing the ‘Holiday Heist’. On the day, guests arrived in their finest 1920’s garb and were welcomed by our own Gangsters & Molls crew at the door of the ‘speakeasy’ to partake in a variety of activies. Apart from sampling some bathtub gin & food, guests could take part in activities such as, dress-up stations, multiple photo ops, performances, karaoke & a escaping a laser style bank vault (we know that lasers weren’t invented in the 1920’s but who doesn’t want to pretend to be Tom Cruise for an evening!)


Dropbox Holiday Heist was a ‘roaring’ success and one which will always be a personal favourite by the Live team.  The collaboration & creativity that was borne from receiving this brief was incredible and to be given the freedom by Dropbox to create this event for them was a fantastic opportunity.
