The requirement of the Mortgage Awards after party demonstrated The Brewery’s ability to host a large event for 450 people, and refit a room in the midst of the event.
The drinks reception was held in the King George III, dinner followed in the Porter Tun and then the guests moved back to a refitted King George III for the after party.
The room had to be transformed into the requested theme of Fire and Ice within two hours. The theme is a popular one, so our design team looked at how it could be done differently. We split the room in half: one side was a shining ice-cool modern club area, the other a much darker gentleman’s club where anything goes. The split look of the room was completed using wall drapes.
The tight turnaround time meant that the process had to be precisely managed; elements of theme were set up earlier in the day in an adjacent room and then moved across during dinner.
The success of the event shows how The Brewery’s versatility and originality can be employed to host varied events at a single venue, with surprising transformations happening during the event.
