For the Wallace Collection’s recent Winter Warmer promo event, we teamed up with a veritable who’s who of event suppliers to help showcase the gallery for an intimate dinner. In the lead up to the event, we worked closely alongside the other suppliers with the team at the Wallace Collection to provide an evening of food and entertainment that made the most of the classical galleries and the contemporary courtyard space.
Guests were greeted by our fire dancer who performed outside the venue before being lead inside. Once they were in the venue, they enjoyed music from Bossa-Jazz covers trio Melody Domain as they sampled seasonal canapes from caterers The Recipe that included Sea Bass Ceviche, Ballotine of pancetta wrapped guinea fowl with wild mushrooms & truffle oil, Lime smoked duck, carrot & ginger salad on gyoza.
For dinner guests were given a choice between Cornish lobster & langoustine risotto or Butternut squash ravioli for starters followed by Duo of Dexter beef with sweet potato puree, sesame greens, crispy shallots and a 5 spiced jus or King Oyster mushroom, salt baked parsnip puree, parsley, caper, pan fried girolles & onion crumb. Furniture came courtesy of GreatHire with table settings were provided by Florists Pinstripes and Peonies and both suppliers complemented the elegant interior of the gallery perfectly.You can see more details on the menu on The Recipe's website.
Visitors were then ushered through to the courtyard where Fisher Productions had worked with Projection Advertising to create a visually stunning video mapping display that incorporated a stunning mix of geometric patterns and animated butterflies which ran along the contours of the surrounding walls and pillars. Fisher also created bespoke bars and lighting installations that incorporated pictures of the iconic Laughing Cavalier and a 'light tree' near the bar area that reconfigured familiar strip lights and bulbs into a minimalist tree structure.
Guests were in for even more surprises from our contemporary circus artistes as they put on a Roué Cyr display in which both performers moved around the stage area in the spinning wheel. If all that wasn't impressive enough, the female half of the duo sang to a backing track throughout the performance.
