While Corporate Entertainment is hardly a male dominated industry (ladies outnumber menfolk 6-4 in the Sternberg Clarke office) it’s still a nice change to see an all female line up of entertainment for an event and that’s just what was on offer at Somerset House last week for Table Talk’s event in the beautiful Terrace area of the venue.
To compliment TableTalk’s irresistable choice of canapes and a selection of drinks tailor-made for a humid London evening – guests were treated to a line-up of corporate entertainment that went from classical to ambient chill-out, with a little close-up magic thrown in for good measure.
First up, guests were treated to the musical talents of String and Wind Quartet, Sahara, who performed a variety of classical and popular tunes in elegant white dresses under the marquee as guests arrived. One of the girls even switched instruments (Flute and later Soprano Sax) to perform a Jazz tinged second set as the light began to fade.
Female magicians are in short supply so when one comes along who’s as charming and talented as Katherine Mills – we rightfully get a little excited. Katherine strolled between guests delighting them with her close up magic tricks using everything from cards to coins to metal rings. Katherine earned herself a number of admirers over the course of the evening and left a huge impression on everyone she performed for.
Once the ladies of Sahara had finished playing and Katherine had put away her magic hoops, it was the turn of DJ and percussionist Lyndsay Evans to entertain guests into the night with an enticing mixture of live performance and DJ-ing. Lyndsay acted as a sort of one woman Organic Jam using a combination of electronic and traditional percussion instruments to create an exciting and energetic musical backdrop for the evening.
You also might have noticed the photo’s of this event are rather good – that’s thanks to extremely talented photographer Hannah Maule-ffinch who was on hand to capture the entire event. As well as her career as a globe-trotting photographer for a range of high-profile publications, Hannah is also a highly sought after wedding photographer and her website is well worth a look if you have an upcoming event that you’d like to capture.
