The past month or so have seen us give a big Funky welcome to some of London’s finest Cultural venues, make sure you check them out!
One of the city’s most exciting cultural hotspots The Barbican’s exhibition programme and theatre productions are a highlight in any savvy art follower’s calendar, but it could also be the ideal space for your event. From corporate hospitality to an awards ceremony The Barbican has a wealth of spaces and the expertise to make your event perfect.
A stone’s throw away from the Olympic Park and filled to the brim with objects documenting the capital’s history, you can hold a truly unique event that could include object handling, complimentary talks and even a guided tour. All this and catering by Ampersand will have you feeling spoilt by the museum’s event team.
We also caught up with newbie Sadler’s Wells to discuss high standards, canapes and, although it’s technically still summer, Christmas…
What’s the most exciting event you’ve held at the Sadler’s Wells in the past 12 months?
There are so many to choose from! We have been thrilled to host a huge range of awards ceremonies, dinners, parties and international conferences throughout our event spaces. But if we had to choose, there is always something special about events in the 1500 seat main auditorium, and TEDxObserver filled it to the brim. Inspirational speakers from all over the world, great music (Lianne La Havas was incredible!), yummy food – an amazing day. You can check out Plan B’s talk here along with all the others.
What can Funky users expect from Sadler’s Wells’ event service?
You can expect to be left feeling totally assured that we will ensure the smooth and calm running of your event. Our service is tailored to you and we strive to deliver events that will exceed your expectations. This means delivering what we promise to a high standard, as well as making sure all the last little details are spot-on.
Sadler’s Wells is iconic for it’s dance productions, are there any highlights coming up you would like to tell Funky users about?
It might seem like it’s a way off yet, but we are already taking bookings for our Christmas show. We are so excited to be hosting the premiere of the brand new Matthew Bourne production of Sleeping Beauty. Expect a gothic twist on a classic tale told with Bourne’s trademark decadence and wit. We are offering exclusive show packages that include VIP tickets for the show, champagne on arrival, a private reception room and luxury canapés as well as a complimentary programme.
