Livett’s Group have been integral to the most eye-catching and ambitious stunts to have taken place on the River Thames over recent years.

See just a few examples of past projects Livett’s have helped coordinate below:


In summer 2016, Livett’s worked with Curb Media on behalf of Virgin Media to deliver the longest ever tow to Westminster. We towed a 112-metre long floating LED screen made up of 106 individual link floats. This impressive feat was achieved without incident and delivered some of the most spectacular photos ever to be taken on the River Thames.


Livett’s have worked closely with Jaguar to deliver three memorable PR stunts on the River Thames and in the Royal Docks. One involved the first ever floating stage on the River Thames, with Emeli Sandé performing live in front of the London Eye – bringing passers-by to a standstill. We also achieved a world record with the longest ever high wire across water, when launching the new Jaguar XF. You can read more about this in our case studies section.


In 2015, Livett’s teamed up with Airbnb and the Star Events Group to deliver the first ever fully functional floating house on the River Thames. Obviously there are plenty of house boats on the river, however this was unique as this looked exactly like a detached Victorian home. Livett’s towed the house to various locations on the Thames, with Airbnb arranging for lucky prize winners to stay in this unique abode.
