Three friends are set to have their dreams come true as they take their events company to a renowned beach club in Ibiza...just a year after setting up the business.

When Tom Larden, Craig Lamy-Cauchi and Jayden Joe first set up Lost In Paradise in April last year, they could never have predicted they would be making their international debut just a little more than a year later.

The 22-year-olds, from Wickford, launched the business after sharing a dream growing up to take their own event company to the top of the game.

From the minute they launched on social media they saw an “unbelievable response” and completely sold out their unforgettable debut event at the Courtyard in Chelmsford in August last year.

Now, in their first year, Tom, Jayden and Craig have put on seven events – including a New Year’s Eve party which sold out in just 10 minutes – in both Essex and London.

The company even hosted a 1,000-capacity festival in Chelmsford this summer with Maravilosa, which was headlined by top DJ George Mensah.

After Lost In Paradise’s second sold out event, well-known club brand Kinky Malinki approached the business on Instagram to offer a collaboration on party island Ibiza, which the young men could not ignore.

Tom said: “We have a three-day weekend planned in Ibiza from the September 29 to October 1 starting with a sunset party at Cafe del Mar on the Friday, a boat party followed by an after party at Itaca on the Saturday and then we take over the amazing Ocean Beach for Lost in Paradise x Kinky Malinki on Sunday.

“Ocean Beach is the most famous beach club in Ibiza and to be able to take Lost In Paradise to Ocean in the first year is a dream come true, it still doesn’t feel real.”

The Ibiza beach club is owned by Gary Lineker’s brother Wayne and is loved by celebrities, including Love Island presenter Maya Jama and Premier League footballer Jack Grealish.

The weekend has nearly sold out with very few tickets left, which Tom expects will sell fast.

“It’s a dream come true we are absolutely buzzing,” Tom added.

“We always planned to take LIP to the top and eventually break into the Ibiza scene but to be there within the first year is unreal.”

The trio plan to take Lost In Paradise global and hope this huge Ibiza debut will be “a step in the right direction”.

They’ll also be hosting another summer festival which promises to be even bigger and better.

Lost In Paradise is set to make a full announcement on its next London event which will take place on November 4, where the brand returns to Studio 9294. Pre-sale tickets are available now at
