Think outside the city – venues within easy reach of London

London is awash with venue choices, from the stunningly unique to ultra-modern and technology led, not forgetting historical and traditional styles too. But you can get a lot more ‘bang for your buck’ if you are willing to look just a little further afield …

This month one of our clients did just that! Starting with a range of locations and wonderful properties (including the stunning Ettington Park Hotel)  they selected 5 star Luton Hoo.

The magnificent mansion house facade welcomed guests for their sales kick-off meeting, the sumptuous surroundings, dedicated event staff and delicious catering ensured the clients were able to concentrate wholly on the content of their presentations.

As day turned to night the guests were invited into the lounge for a champagne reception as the room was transformed from corporate meeting space into elegant dining room. A silver-service four-course banquet ensued and a late bar kept the conversation flowing late into the evening.

Next time you’re looking for a meeting venue, speak to us about somewhere just a little ‘outside of the box’ and you will be pleasantly surprised!

Private Dining Experience – Steak Secret

Last month we were tasked with building a unique dinner event for a group of VIP clients; emphasis on it being something they wouldn’t have ever experienced before.

As event experts we have provided a range of engaging dinner entertainment acts, group activities and exclusive menus/tastings in the past so have a vast selection of ideas. This time though we knew of a rather special pop-up venue that might just fit the bill …

Steak Secret at JW Steakhouse on London’s Park Lane was a limited experience running up until early January. The public could book a seat at a shared dinner using secret codes found on social networking, the intrigue continued when you arrive at the rear entrance and are lead through the buzzing kitchens to solve the mystery and ‘uncover’ some of the best steak (& accompanying courses) you have ever tasted.

Our team managed to secure an exclusive night allowing our client to invite 12 of their top customers for a truly one-off evening of gastronomy and networking.

Head chef Julian Ward created an All-American mouth-watering tasting menu and introduced each of the 7 courses himself – taking time to show the guests the different steak cuts too.

Whilst this probably wasn’t one for the veggies, the specially invited guests had a wonderful time sampling the delicious food, matched wines and even a specially crafted Bourbon cocktail – overall an experience they’ll never forget.
