After years of work carried out into the refurbishment of the Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank Centre, our client hosted a private opening for close family and friends. The evening began with guests greeted at the entrance with a glass of champagne where they were escorted into the large concert hall to watch the client conduct a large orchestra for the duration of an hour.
After the performance guests spilled out into the Hall reception and enjoyed an assortment of canapes with an Italian influence. An incredible Pasta station was constantly busy, serving guests exquisite pasta and risotto cooked in a giant parmesan wheel. We built a large bar to be the central feature of the Hall, dressed with foliage and floral to give the natural and organic look and feel, accompanied by pots of lemons, herbs and tomatoes in keeping with the Italian influence for the evening. The event was a beautiful way to celebrate the grand opening of this fabulous and versatile event space.
