On St Patrick's Day on Tuesday (17 March), ISES UK teamed up with Meet in Ireland to deliver Irish-themed entertainment and networking opportunities for 150 attendees at London’s One Embankment. Irish comedian Jarlath Regan was responsible for the keynote speech and stand-up comedy, before Silken Strings at H2oh! Entertainment performed some electric string numbers. Starlight Design and Partridge Events designed and delivered all production for the evening, and guests enjoyed Exquisite Cocktail’s Guinness punch and Blue Strawberry’s Irish-inspired menu, as well as a giant, edible table of chocolate.

Also on Thursday, Late Night London’s meetings & events team hosted a venue preview at the newly revamped Balls Brother’s Bury Court location on St Mary Axe in the City.
