What a wonderful week we enjoyed last week! Not only did we get to enjoy not one but two fabulous Christmas adverts – thank you very much, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer – but we were also able to once again enjoy the simple pleasures of a Pret Christmas sandwich and a Gregg’s Festive Bake! What a delight. These things were all lovely but in truth, the real highlight of last week was the Royal Hospital Chelsea showcase, photos of which you can enjoy within this blog!
When the Royal Hospital Chelsea events team got in touch recently to say that they would be holding a showcase in early November and would we want to get involved, we jumped at the chance. We adore the Royal Hospital Chelsea both as a venue for private and corporate events but also as a place that holds exceptional public performances including Ludovico Einaudi, which we were lucky enough to attend a few months ago. The photos from Prestigious Venues above really do manage to convey a lot of the beauty of the occasion; the photos from Mark Bothwell below are also just as stunning... The one caveat being our own photo of Isabella's harp directly below. Some might say it's not so good (and they'd be right).
Guests were greeted by sumptuous lights adorning the venue, beautifully providing just a hint of the glamour that was to come. With production from the Vibration Group, catering from Blue Strawberry and flowers from Pinstripes and Peonies, this was certainly an evening that everybody within the industry was clamouring to attend. Throw in some Sternberg Clarke entertainment and anybody who was lucky enough to have an invite was guaranteed a great time.
The showcase took the form of a reception, with the Chelsea Pensioners adding a flavour that you don’t tend to receive at other events. The canapés were exceptional, with a truly creative presentation and it was lovely to enjoy the venue in a relaxed atmosphere. On the entertainment side of things, we provided Isabella the harpist to play a number of songs that we felt would cater to the clientele perfectly. Isabella is exceptionally experienced and has worked for us for many years. No matter the occasion – from weddings through to high end corporate dinners – she is always one of the stand outs at any event at which she appears.
For more upbeat music later in the evening, we turned to Acoustik, one of our current favourite acts! Normally a duo but performing as a trio for this Royal Hospital Chelsea showcase, Acoustik are an absolute pleasure to work with and offer the perfect entertainment no matter if you’re after background entertainment or a proper show!
This truly was a tremendously enjoyable November event in south west London and we can’t wait to return in 2018.
