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.

Thursday night (19 March) saw The Concerto Group’s annual dinner take place at the Natural History Museum in London.

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. Industry professionals from agencies including Capita Travel and Events, Chew, Grass Roots, Ten Group and Beyond Certainty gathered to take part in gin and whiskey master classes and enjoy a collection of tasters from the mixed drinks menu.

This morning (20 March), Team Spirit celebrated the solar eclipse by grabbing a view of it using a Welding mask from its creations department. The team also experimented with a pinhole camera.
