Unique Venues of London is 25! A coming together of the finest event venues in London, they celebrated their birthday party at London’s Guildhall in the heart of the City and we were only too pleased to provide the entertainment. We owe a huge gratitude to Matt Chung for his fab photos of the evening.
Upon being welcomed into this most sumptuous of venues, guests were instantly stunned by the production from White Light Events and the floral presentation from Lavender Green. The Great Hall looked absolutely stunning with caterers Moving Venue assembling food around three sides of the room and a circular stage in the centre. What could that be used for? The entertainment from us of course!
The first act to perform during the evening was the excellent Echo, a trio of string musicians that rather impressively sing whilst they play. Performing three background sets throughout the evening, the music was just perfect for this sort of event; elegant on the ears but not too overbearing to get in the way of important networking conversations!
As the clock struck seven, it was time for something slightly different! Frobacks danced their way onto the stage before producing a stunning set that combined modern dance, a whole load of charisma and backflips galore. Not only did they make use of the stage in a phenomenal way, but they even jumped into the audience. They really are an incredible act and astonished each and every guest in the room. How could we top that?
Hold that thought – it was time for a Mashtini, which is the finest edible creation we’ve enjoyed at an event in quite some time. Okay, that I’ve enjoyed. I can’t speak for everybody in the room but a combination of mash, meatballs or pulled park and an assortment of toppings all delivered in a Martini glass… Perfection!
Jack Pack were on hand next to deliver a short taster set ahead of a longer headline one later on and they utterly bewitched the room. Four great singers, fab tunes – what more could you want? Okay fine, there was one last slice of entertainment for guests to enjoy at Guildhall, London and it was created to show that bespoke entertainment is not only possible but can be utterly beautiful as well.
We combined the fabulous Emma – a violinist whom we have booked on numerous occasions to perform at many of the Unique Venues of London – to perform with hand balancer Felipe, a man who makes you question whether physics even exists at all. As you can see from the photos, when combined they delivered a truly jaw-dropping act that mesmerised all attendees. The music, the feats of strength, the showmanship! It was truly spectacular.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening at Guildhall, London and we cannot wait to return. The various suppliers including Plaster, Twilight Trees, Velvet Living and Coates and Seely all worked together tremendously and showed just how exciting the events scene in the capital really is. Here’s to another 25 years! We can’t wait to see what the 50th birthday bash will provide.
