On Wednesday (2 March), Merlin Events London launched The Tavern pub at The London Dungeon to 100 invited guests. The evening began with a drinks reception in the Gin Palace, before an actor-led tour of the London Dungeon, complete with ride.

Guests then enjoyed drinks and food served by caterers Food by Dish in The Tavern, while an East End landlady and landlord kept them entertained with tales about the Great Beer Flood. The caterer served rustic platters featuring black pudding scotch eggs and giant Gruyere cheese straws, followed by a selection of pub classic bowl food options, including sausage and mash with crispy onions and fisherman’s pie with cheddar crust. Dessert canapés included sea salt crusted chocolate tart and passionfruit and coconut macaroon.

On Monday (29 February), The Natural History Museum in London launched Waterhouse Way as a private hire events space. Guests began the evening in the Earth Hall, with a Prosecco reception and interactive food stations, with squid ink blinis, cured salmon and black truffle ricotta tortellinis. The food was provided by catering company Moving Venue. The group then continued to Waterhouse Way, where they were served lobster cannelloni and treacle roast beef fillet, short rib croquettes and artichoke cream.

On Tuesday (1 March), The Concerto Group's client dinner took place at Landing Forty Two in London's Leadenhall Building. More than 160 guests attended the dinner, including representatives from brands such as Deloitte, Edelman, The Financial Times, GlaxoSmithKline, Google, Louis Vuitton, SocieteGenerale, PWC, Mitsubishi and Bloomberg.  

Attendees enjoyed a Champagne and canapé reception with views across the capital, before sitting down to a dinner put together by Concerto-owned caterer Create. Vibration and Fullcircle supplied the entertainment.
