After a slightly unexpected seventeen month break, The Brewery has sprung back to life, with a jam packed schedule of incredible events. It’s hard to put into words how exciting it’s been, to once again hear sounds of laughter, music and engaging discussions ringing out across the venue. Our much loved concierge, Eddy, couldn’t wait to dust off his bowler hat, and get back into our courtyard, welcoming guests, both old and new, into their events.
We are completely committed to playing our part in the safe return of events, making sure that we’re doing everything we can to protect both our staff and guests. We have introduced a range of on-site measures including proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter, masked staff and enhanced cleaning schedules. You can read our full list of safety measures below or download them here.RE-Opening-Covid-Policy-July-2021-V1
For our very first event back love was in the air, as we celebrated the wedding of Carolyne and Oliver, in The Sugar Rooms. It was such an honour for us to reopen with this special occasion and welcome sixty of the couples closest friends and family to the venue. The lucky guests got to feast on a beautiful wedding breakfast and canapes designed and cooked by our Executive Chef, Andrew Connor, and his team. It’s been a real joy for our kitchen team to be back crafting delicious menus for guests to enjoy, rather than beans on toast at home!
As August came to a close we recognised the individuals and organisations that display outstanding commitment to the LGBT community, when we hosted The British LGBT Awards. This fabulous, high energy event was attended by over 650 guests, including a range of popular celebrities and influencers, and received global media coverage. Its nights like this one, that remind everyone at The Brewery why we love events so much. It wasn’t just the guests having fun, we were having the time of our lives.
The UK Jewellery Festival and The Decameron, Enotria&Coe’s annual wine tasting, were both fantastic showcase events for their respective industries. The variety of rooms at the Brewery, provided lots of space for exhibitors, to show off the latest styles, and flavours to their trade customers. Across the two events there were over 800 attendees, with the guests of Decameron getting to try our brand new Poke lunch menu, which was a perfect accompaniment to the late summer sunshine outside.
It’s always great to see familiar faces, and we once again welcomed back the wonderful team from Bamboo Events. Bamboo have produced some of the most creative events we’ve seen at The Brewery over the last few years, and they didn’t disappoint again. The room popped with colour and the guests responded by having a brilliant time and had the room shaking when they hit the dancefloor till late into the night. Anyone who works in events knows that positive feedback is our lifeblood, and we were ecstatic to receive such a glowing review from the event organiser. We couldn’t resist sharing this little snippet:
“The Brewery really is such a special venue and one we love working at. No other venue in London offers such exclusivity with our own private courtyard, amazing function rooms and incredible food. However, I strongly believe it’s the people behind the building who make the venue one of our favourites. We really do appreciate and feel that each and every one of you really want to help make sure our event is the best it can be. “
Our new AV partners, Encore, got to flex their technical muscles when we hosted our first truly hybrid event. Using the technology, we now have available in house, they were able to connect events simultaneously happening in London and Belgium. This included streaming a live DJ set to both events to enjoy during their after party. We may still have some restrictions keeping us apart but we can still use the technology available to bring us closer together.
As you can see we’ve been busy bees over since we reopened just over a month ago, and this is just a small selection of all the events that we have hosted. It’s great to be back in business and we would love to have the opportunity to host your event.
Get in touch with our Head of Business Development, Faye Loader, and we can arrange a site visit or call to discuss your requirements for the remainder of 2021 and the future.
