The venue combined acoustics with custom-built tiered staging and stalls seating, and has a banqueting capacity of 620. A bespoke balustrade system using LED technology was developed especially for the project.
Partridge Events organised the evening, where speaker Michael Jacobsen advised on bridging the gap between creative ideas and commerce. The evening’s entertainment included the singing trio Tenors Un Limited, a 3D ScanBot to take photos, and magician and illusionist Deceptionist.
On Thursday (15 January), the Natural History Museum held the launch event for its new addition, the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeleton.
