Recent Events Round-Up: Marching Bands, Magic, Speakers and Vocal Harmony

July 04, 2013


On trawling through last month’s event pictures, a hardy blogwriter chanced upon a veritable treasure trove of unused pictures from corporate events and decided it was his responsibility, nay, his duty to share them with the blogreading public. He eagerly gathered the unused event pictures into a bindle and made his way out of the file library whistling a jaunty tune, imagining the rip-roaring blog-yarn he would weave with his photographic bounty.

 Events with a British theme just aren’t really British until they’ve got a marching band of some description – if it’s a military marching band, even better. The British Imperial Military Marching Band put on a show with all the discipline and precision you’d expect from something that was both British and Military (not to mention Imperial) at Old Billingsgate.

 Vintage Vocal Harmony 5-some Elle & the Pocket Belles got a chance to crack out the old-timey sailor outfits for an event aboard the Cutty Sark performing their usual mix of hits from the 30s, 40s and 50s as well as some retro-infused arrangements of modern tunes.

 Close-up magician Pete Hathway took his nimble fingered card tricks and mind magic to Folly Bar for a recent corporate event where he performed alongside Elle and the Pocket Belles but we’ve already shown you a picture of them. Pete’s innovative sleight of hand illusions kept guests on their brain-toes as he weaved from table to table.

 Seasoned broadcast journalist Penny Haslam acted as host for a recent awards ceremony at The Chelsea Bridge Hotel. Penny’s years of experience presenting BBC’s breakfast news as well as BBC1’s The 6 O’Clock News, BBC Radio 4’s Feedback and Channel 4 News made her a fitting host choice for the evening.
