Tobacco Dock in east London hosted its inaugural Summer Games event last night at its rooftop bar, Skylight, welcoming some of the UK’s leading event agencies for an evening of fun and games to see out the summer. 

Upon arrival, guests were treated to a drinks reception with a range of summer themed cocktails on offer. Agencies then took part in a croquet, petanque and cocktail competition with Redactive Media Group crowned the overall winner.

The East London venue’s in-house caterer, Tobacco Dock Food, delighted attendees with a delicious Brazilian BBQ consisting of traditional dishes such as steak and chimichurri, feijoada and pao de queijo. The team also served delectable canape desserts including Brazilian Eton Mess and mixed berry custard tarts.

Following the tournament, the fun and games continued with a silent disco, cocktail making sessions and a photo booth. 

Francis Cremona, head of business development at Tobacco Dock, said: "Our first ever Tobacco Dock Summer Games proved to be a fantastic night for all involved. We hope that the lawn games tournament, BBQ, themed cocktails and silent disco provided a night to remember to guests as summer draws to a close."
