On Thursday (4 June), London venue Middle Temple hosted a celebratory event to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta and showcase its new Wolf Hall party package. Around 80 guests including event agency representatives, corporate event professionals and local businesses attended the event. 

Middle Temple partnered with Viva Live Music to produce the historical theatrics and entertainment. Guests were welcomed to Middle Temple Hall by a court jester, while Tudor renaissance music played in the background. Ampersand Events catered the event providing a selection of contemporary canapés influenced by the flavours and ingredients popular in the Tudor era, including wild boar crown pie, cured trout with watercress puree and Runnymede soft boiled quail eggs with asparagus soldiers. King Henry VIII arrived with new wife Anne Boleyn and guests enjoyed a food tasting from his recent hunt.

On Wednesday (3 June), Grass Roots Meetings & Events invited more than 50 industry professionals to celebrate the recent opening of the M By Montcalm in Shoreditch. The evening event consisted of drinks and canapés and brought together many of Grass Roots’ clients as well as members of the press to celebrate the opening of the venue. The event provided attendees the opportunity to be among the first to view the new super-tech hotel and its meeting spaces.

Also on Wednesday, Fisher Productions undertook production of the bars and courtyard for the RA Summer Exhibition Preview Party to open the annual contemporary art exhibition. The event was attended by representatives from the worlds of art, fashion and music. Guests entered the party via the courtyard where two giant 5m high RA balloons floated above a maze of carpets weaving through the sculptures to encourage guests to interact. Fisher designed and created two drinks bars and three food stations within the galleries, including an oversized, gold pineapple dessert station with a patisserie-style display of desserts.
