6 of The best Christmas canapés


There’s no time that tests your culinary skills quite like the Christmas season. With a myriad of get-togethers, gatherings and parties throughout December, you’ll want to impress your guests with only the tastiest of treats.

At The Brewery, we’re passionate about food and truly believe in creating a gastronomic experience with every mouthful. Led by Food Director Tom Gore and Executive Chef Steve Connell, the team of chefs at The Brewery deliver outstanding dishes on a daily basis through eclectic menus and a huge amount of sheer passion and enthusiasm for what they do.  We pulled some of our award-winning chefs out of the kitchen, and asked their opinions on the best canapes to serve at Christmas to create a real ‘wow’ factor at your next Christmas gathering or party.

1. Tomato tarte tatin

A simple dish, tomato tarte tatin is the perfect savoury light bite, and will delight your vegetarian guests. A delicate tart that won’t spoil the appetite, the crisp pastry works perfectly with the light, sweet filling. We suggest roasting the tomatoes the night before so that the tarts can be prepared in the morning ahead of your party, and then kept in the fridge until your guests arrive.

2. Quail egg with cured salmon

Although a simple dish, these can be made quickly and easily, and are sure to go down well with your party guests. A tasty one-bite snack, the flavours work fantastically alongside a glass of Champagne for the perfect appetizer.

3. Beetroot arancini

There’s something beautifully festive about the fuchsia hue of these beetroot arancini bites- not only do they look fantastic, but they taste great too. Arancini is named after the little oranges that the rice balls resemble after they are fried, and are a great way to use up any leftover risotto!


4. Crispy chicken skin

Without a doubt the best part of a roast chicken, your guests will devour these golden, crispy chicken skin canapes. Utterly addictive and incredibly tasty, add ricotta or rosemary scented mascarpone for the perfect pre-dinner appetizer.

5. Soy tuna and wonton crisps

The key to this delicious treat is using the freshest ingredients possible, so get your hands on the freshest tuna you can find. Serve some crispy wonton chips either with the tuna, or alongside it to encourage your guests to help themselves for a fun and sociable appetizer.

6. Tomato and olive tapenade

The perfect accompaniment to festive drinks with friends, tapenade will add a taste of the Mediterranean to the cold evenings. The saltiness of the ingredients makes a cold gin and tonic the perfect pairing to this Provencal favourite.

The menus at The Brewery are influenced by culinary experiences that our chefs have gained from working all over the world, and there is no limit to what they can create. All the canapes mentioned above have been inspired by our Autumn/ Winter canape menu.

5 Things to do in London this Christmas


There’s something truly magical about London at Christmas. From the twinkling lights and window displays to the bustle of the Christmas markets and ice rinks across the city, London comes to life when the cold nights draw in. Whether it’s shopping, seeing a show, or taking a stroll past many of London’s famous landmarks that get you in the Christmas spirit, London is certain to have something to offer to get you in the mood. Here is our rundown of the best things to do in London this Christmas.

1. Visit the V&A

The V&A’s music themed festive programme, ‘Sounds like Christmas’ includes a variety of events and activities to excite and entertain all ages over the Christmas period. Es Devlin’s installation, ‘The Singing Tree’ is brought to life with machine learning, as festive words collected by the public over the Christmas season are then transformed into an audio-visual carol. The V&A is also holding lunchtime lectures on Medieval Carols, drop-in festive design workshop weekends and Choirs by Candlelight, amongst a wealth of other seasonal activities and events throughout the Christmas period.

2. Take to the ice

Ice skating in London has been a welcome festive tradition since the world’s first artificial ice rink was introduced in Chelsea in 1876. Since then, an abundance of ice rinks have appeared over the capital. The ever popular 18th century courtyard of Somerset House creates a breath-taking setting for one of the most popular ice rinks in London, complete with a 40-foot Christmas tree. Once your ice skates are off, browse the Fortnum’s Christmas Arcade to tick any last Christmas gifts off the list. The Natural History Museum houses an impressive 1,000 square metre ice rink, lit by 80,000 twinkling lights outside the beautiful building. Skate around one of the most historical landmarks in London, the Tower of London, which creates the perfect backdrop to its ice rink, surrounded by pop-up stalls and a host of festive events.

3. Enjoy Wintertime at Southbank

Nothing embodies Christmas in London quite like Wintertime at Southbank. Throughout the festive season, you can find one of the most popular Christmas markets in the city, interactive exhibitions, a Finnish rooftop sauna and even the opportunity to eat fondue in a snow globe. Southbank Centre’s Thame-side Winter Festival offers everything you need to fully immerse yourself in Christmas spirit, whether you want to catch up with friends, stock up on festive food or see one of the many shows on offer.

4. Watch a film in a Snow Kingdom

This year, the Backyard Cinema is pulling out all the stops as it creates the Snow Kingdom. The Mercato Metropolitano is transformed into an enchanted castle, nestled in the snowy mountains of a faraway land. Enter the cinema through a secret entrance at the foot of the mountain, and take a magical journey through a frozen lake and ice cave to the grand ballroom, where you can nestle under a blanket and sip on drinks from a potion-themed cocktails menu while watching a film. Bliss!

5. Sing Carols at St Paul’s

Visible from The Brewery, and undoubtedly the spiritual home of London, few places offer a more magical setting for a traditional Christmas service that St Paul’s. Through December, St Pauls is playing host to a series of concerts, peaking with the spectacular Christmas Carol Service on the 23rd and 24th December. A truly awe-inspiring building, St Pauls boasts unrivalled views across London, and is sure to ignite your Christmas spirit as you take in the sights and sounds of Christmas in a beautiful setting.

The dark side of London

The bustling city of London is a destination for travellers and ghost hunters worldwide, steeped in history and home to countless buildings full of grisly tales and legends from days gone by. London is known for being the most haunted city in the world, and with a history so rich- and at times rather gruesome- it’s easy to see why.

In the name of Halloween, we’re taking a look into some of the eerier areas in our historical city. Read on, if you dare…

Tower of London

A list of the spookiest locations in London would not be complete without mentioning the infamous Bloody Tower. Used as a prison from 1100 to 1952, The Tower of London housed prisoners who had found themselves on the wrong side of the Royal Family, and consequently met a gruesome end by beheading. Many historical figures are said to haunt the site, and apparitions of Henry VI, Guy Fawkes and perhaps most famously Anne Boleyn, have all been witnessed by both visitors and employees.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

Visible from The Brewery, St. Paul’s Cathedral is a spectacular sight, and a constant reminder of the resurrection of London after it was destroyed by the Great Fire in 1966. Despite its beauty, St. Paul’s has been the site of many ghost sightings over the centuries. The most famous ghost in St. Paul’s is that of an elderly clergyman, who is said to haunt St Paul’s with a high-pitched whistle.

Theatre Royal

Just about every town has a haunted theatre, but The Theatre Royal in Drury Lane has a reputation as the most haunted theatre in the world. Numerous actors performing at The Theatre Royal have spoken of voices, apparitions and unnerving sounds throughout the theatre, amongst these being some distinct reoccurring characters. The most legendary ghost is that of an 18th century actor who appears in the dress circle, suited in a wig, tricorn hat and sword. Chillingly, this particular ghost has been associated with a skeleton with a dagger in its ribs that was uncovered by workmen in 1848.

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is one of only two surviving palaces owned by King Henry VIII, and is now open to the public as a major tourist attraction. For hundreds of years, both staff and visitors have reported unexplained sightings and sounds in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace. The Haunted Gallery is home to the site’s most notorious ghost, Henry VIII’s fifth wife Catherine Howard, who is said to haunt the corridor with a blood-curdling scream.

And The Brewery….

Unlike these chilling venues around London, The Brewery isn’t a ghost hotspot- but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its own dark secrets. The Brewery has set the scene for some rather strange deaths in its time. In 1815, the founder’s son, Samuel Whitbread II cut his own throat ‘from ear to ear’ fuelled by anxieties about the decline of the business.

Another chilling tale rooted in The Brewery’s history is that of John Martineau, who had effectively saved Whitbread by combining the brewery with his own in 1812. Martineau was found dead in a yeast trough at Chiswell Street in 1834. The verdict? He apparently ‘Died by the visitation of God.’

The rich and interesting history of The Brewery is what makes the venue so fascinating and unique. Entertaining Londoners since 1750, the rooms in the historic, Grade II listed building are full of character, ranging from elaborate great halls to vaulted rooms.

5 Ideas to help break the ice at your event

Networking is crucial to any business event. Connecting with valuable contacts and like-minded people at a conference or event is often viewed as being equally important as the event itself. When planning an event, it’s important to not leave such opportunities to chance. In today’s digital world, face-to-face interaction can feel a little daunting. While putting your plans in place, it’s a good idea to have this in mind, and make sure that you actively facilitate these valuable networking opportunities for your attendees to make the whole process feel a little less awkward. Here is our guide on how to encourage networking and break the ice at your next event…

1. Get digital

If you want your participants to use your event as a prime networking opportunity, get them talking a few months beforehand. Create an online community to allow your guests to connect virtually – whether that be in a forum, app or LinkedIn group. Not only can your attendees use this as an opportunity to connect and get chatting with the relevant contacts ahead of your event, but you can use this online space as a means of promoting your event, too.

2. Consider your space

A well-considered space is vital when encouraging your guests to mingle. Before booking your event space, ensure that there is enough room for dedicated breakout areas. These areas are incredibly important, designed to spark conversations in a ‘natural’ environment. Try to create areas within the event space which will naturally encourage delegates to gather, and think about the placement of furniture.  Offer plenty of comfortable seating, and create different areas to accommodate different needs. At The Brewery, neither size or layout is an issue. The flexible setup of our conference venue means you can link spaces, or use different rooms as breakout areas around a main space.

3. Simplify your name badges

Though a seemingly obvious pointer, it’s astounding how often name badges become a hindrance when it comes to breaking the ice at an event. Ensure both the name and company name is large and legible, even at a distance, so that introductions are as natural as possible. If you’re using an app for your event, you could even include QR codes on the name badges to save an exchange of business cards.

4. Organise some activities

Despite your best efforts, it’s not unusual to discover your attendees using their spare time in- between talks at business events to check their emails rather than talking amongst themselves. With a bit of pre-planning, this can be easily avoided by arranging a few activities to keep your guests engaged and the conversation flowing. There are plenty of options here depending on how creative you want to get, but any activity that encourages your guests to team up and work together will work well. Competitions, contests and quizzes are great for breaking the ice, but you could also consider a slightly more formal approach, with organised talks by industry leaders, table-top discussion topics, or posters in breakout areas with questions related to the theme of your event. Why not organize an early-morning or lunchtime workshop to get your attendees geared up for the day ahead?


5. Provide food and drink

There’s no easier method to encourage people to gather in one area than to lay on some food and drink. Probably one of the most effective ways to facilitate networking, providing food and drink gives your delegates a reason to stay in one area and open up some conversation in a relaxed and informal space.  Here at The Brewery we know that food plays a big part in your event, and have a passionate team of chefs who will design and create a menu to suit both your corporate event and a wide range of palettes- sure to create a talking point for your guests!

If you’re on the lookout for a venue for your business event or conference, The Brewery couldn’t be better suited. Our unique venue is a talking point in itself and offers all you need to accommodate a great event with plenty of opportunities for your guests to network.

How to make your event memorable

So, you’ve planned an event? That’s great! Organising the basic elements for an event is perhaps the most time-consuming task, and it’s likely that you’ve thought through every detail of your venue, attendees, merchandising and activities. But what about the little touches that will make a lasting impression on your guests? Make sure you leave time and budget to add a few special touches to your event that will set yours aside from the rest.

1. Make the greeting personal

Appealing to your guests on a personal level is a sure-fire way of guaranteeing a memorable experience, which will exceed all expectations. To make a lasting impression, you’ll need to do a small bit of preparation before the day – just a small question on the registration form will do. Use their nickname or favourite hobby on their nametags, or greet your guests with their favourite drink. What better way to thank them for taking the time to come to your event? This tiny detail could make a big impact, and make a real point of difference.

2. Don’t under estimate the power of good food

It’s been said time and time again, but there’s no denying that good food is an essential attribute of any event. Providing food at an event isn’t just a case of feeding them, it’s about hosting them and making them feel welcome. Make sure that you spend time selecting a great menu that will resonate with your guests as a real reflection of your event. Consider your guest list, and be sure to factor in dietary requirements and food allergies. Events are ultimately about hospitality – conversations and connections are often built around sharing great food. There is so much room for creativity when it comes to food, so step outside the box and opt for anything but sandwiches!

The Brewery can design bespoke menus to suit the guests or theme of the event. Our passionate, award-winning chefs work with our local suppliers to provide incredible menus that will satisfy every palette and provide a truly memorable breakfast, lunch or dinner.

3. Create a ‘wow factor’

It’s important to remember that although this event may have occupied your mind and schedule for 6 months, this is one of many business events that your guests will be attending. This means that you’ll need to put in a bit of work to break the mould and set your event apart from the rest. There are endless ways to do this- create photo opportunities, select a memorable and inspiring playlist or make your ‘wow factor’ the venue itself. The Brewery is a truly unique venue with a rich history, which is sure to create a lasting impression on your guests.

4. Don’t forget to follow up

So once the event is over, it’s time to relax, right? Not yet! If you really want to secure a place in the minds of your attendees long after the event has ended, make sure you keep your foot on the pedal. Reach out to your delegates while they’re still reeling from the event and keep them engaged while they’re still feeling inspired by creating an upsell opportunity, or asking for their feedback the day after.

By factoring in a few extra touches when planning your event, your attendees will have the best possible experience, and are more likely to remember your event for all the right reasons!

How to keep your attendees entertained


If you’re holding a corporate event, you want to make sure that your attendees are having a good time. Step away from the stereotype of corporate events being boring or unengaging and bring some fun into the day with these exciting, out-of-the-box ideas to keep your guests wide-awake and entertained!

Make them curious

Don’t give away all your secrets at the beginning of the event. Start the event by hinting at things that will be discussed or activities that will happen later in the day but don’t give too much away.  You could even make the mystery a feature in itself, with attendees trying to guess who your speakers may be, what activities they may be doing, what subjects may be talked about, either on social media or in person.

If you want to get people even more motivated to involve themselves in the speculation, try offering prizes for correctly working out the agenda of the day.

Social media interaction

Social media is a key part of any event nowadays and there’s no reason why this can’t be used to your advantage in keeping attendees entertained. If you’re wondering how to make your event more social media friendly, check out our blog on making an event Instagram-worthy.

For overarching social media inclusion for your event, the most important things to remember are hashtags for the event, engagement from the company accounts and photo opportunities. Something like a photobooth is an entertaining and engaging way for attendees to document their attendance and have some fun with their friends and colleagues.

Music and visuals

Music is often considered a stimulus, raising the heart rate and keeping people alert. We recommend using music at your events, as either a soundtrack or a feature of the day, but don’t just let the music fade into the background. If there is any sort of performance element to your event, why not pair it with some fantastic visuals to really capture people’s attention, engage and entertain them.

At The Brewery, our intelligent LED lighting systems in our venue rooms mean that the displays can be paired with any music you want and can create fantastic visuals to astound your guests. Find out more about our audio-visual systems here.


Get them involved

There’s nothing that helps audience engagement and enjoyment more than getting people involved in fun activities or team building exercises. Including hands-on activities during the course of the day will break up any long periods of sitting still and listening to speakers, and give your attendees time to move around, socialise and enjoy themselves.

Some examples of activities you could create – icebreakers where attendees have to guess previous jobs that colleagues have done, investigations around the venue, and whatever else you can come up with! While there are factors to consider, such as the number of people involved, there’s no limit to what activities could be presented.


Popular culture inclusion

It’s always good to make sure a speech or presentation stays up to date with the latest industry news and advancements from your business sector, and the same can be said for popular culture references. While a bad or outdated reference can sometimes provide amusement, make sure to engage your audience with current references, whether it’s a chart-topping song, a celebrity that has recently been in the news, an awards event or a new film or tv show.

These little references will do more than just emphasise that you’re aware of the world around you. They’ll provide opportunities for people to talk and remember information because of the associations you provide.

If you’re looking to hold a corporate event, why not take a look at what The Brewery has to offer. With our range of facilities, technology and rooms, we can help make your event entertaining and engaging for all your attendees.

5 Tips for playing music at your corporate event


Think of corporate events, and music may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, parties aren’t the only events which come alive with the addition of music- whether that be a DJ, a live performance, or a playlist. All business events, from awards dinners to conferences can benefit from a well-considered soundtrack to set the mood- whatever that mood may be!

Here are some points to take into consideration when choosing the music for your business event.

Keep it subtle

At a business event, background music tends to work best. You’ll want your guests to hardly notice the music so that it doesn’t become a distraction and discourage social interaction, but manages to smooth over any busy background noise. Instrumental music works particularly well at business events, enhancing the atmosphere and providing the perfect transition during breaks and pauses in the line-up.

Set the tone

Music doesn’t just make for great entertainment- it also helps to influence people’s behaviour. Varying types and genres of music don’t just encourage people to move and act differently, but can also alter people’s perceptions of situations. Loud, fast-paced music makes people move faster, while gentle, slow-paced music makes people slow down.

Before you pick your soundtrack, decide whether you want your event to buzz with excitement, or be a more relaxed environment for your attendees.  Are you hoping to increase sales at your event with impulsive and spur-of-the-moment purchases, or encourage your attendees to listen attentively to talks? Perhaps you want to boost the confidence and mood of your audience?

Addressing how you want your guests to act and feel at your event could enable you to create the perfect playlist.

Consider your event space

It goes without saying that music being played in a small lobby will sound completely different to how it sounds in a great hall with high ceilings. Before your event, test the volume of the music in all areas of your venue, bearing in mind the footfall you’re expecting and the activities that will be taking place in each room. You’ll need to ensure that the levels aren’t too high and piercing, and that volumes are adjusted according to the size of the space.

Keep the music on-brand

Every good brand is built on passion, and music is no different. Regardless of the genre, passion can be heard and felt though the artists, which is why music can so easily evoke inspiration when paired with a brand at an event. Whether it’s your brand or a brand you’re working with, make sure your playlist reflects the personality and identity of the brand in question. Music is an extremely emotive medium- your guests may relate a song with your brand for years after your event, so choose wisely!

Choose a great sound system

You may have chosen the perfect playlist for your event, but use the wrong sound system and you might as well not play music at all! The sound system will be a key component for your event- not only for music, but for speeches and announcements too.

Most venues already have sound systems installed, but if not, you’ll need to let a supplier know the number of attendees you’re expecting, the floorplan of the venue and the room layout to ensure they can provide the best sound quality for your event.

Here at The Brewery, we have been partnered with AVC Live since 2013. Armed with both the knowledge of The Brewery’s layout as well as AVC’s advanced technical knowhow, we can create exceptional audio-visual design, tailor-made to suit your event.

If you’re looking for an event space and an outstanding audio-visual setup, whether it is for a conference, award dinner, a product launch, or any other event, make an enquiry today.

IMEX Blog: How VR is changing the face of the events industry

Ahead of her trip to IMEX 2017 Victoria Bell, business development executive, at The Brewery discusses how VR is moving from the world of science fiction into the real world and what this means for event professionals everywhere.

Most people will agree that when it comes to business, face-to-face interaction simply can’t be beaten. However, in a globally connected world, that simply isn’t always feasible. Rather than settling for more traditional forms of communication, Virtual Reality (VR) is creating the next best thing by immersing users in a virtually constructed replica of the real world. In Lehman’s terms, this means virtual venue tours, virtual venue styling and eventually, perhaps, even the first virtual event!

Starting at the very beginning of event planning, imagine conducting site visits in Beijing, Paris and New York all on your lunch break and from your office in Las Vegas. As is usually the result of new technology, it begins simply by saving us time and eventually expands to changing the way we live.

The technology requires a headset and ranges from the super simple Google Cardboard, which utilises a smartphone device, all the way to Samsung’s Gear VR which includes an inbuilt screen powered by Oculus. Having recently launched our own virtual reality venue tour, we can attest to its benefits having already seen a 20% increase in global business as a result.

Our new venue tour allows users to instantly jump into the virtually constructed grounds of The Brewery and navigate through all the venues spaces from your smartphone. Upon putting the headset on, users will be met with a high-definition, 360 degree view of the venue and can navigate the spaces via an interactive menu controlled solely by looking at a series of virtual tabs and pointers.

Although VR tours are impressive, what’s truly exciting is the future capabilities of virtual and augmented reality technology. The buzzword of the last few years, personalisation really comes into its own with virtual reality. Imagine tailoring an event to each individual in attendance, curating what they see when they walk in to a venue, what elements of an event are stressed and who they are connected with.

This could mean highlighting guests who have similar business interests at a networking event or virtual signage and directions to a specific stand at an exhibition, making the entire experience feel more personal and custom-made. Good events tell a story while creating a shared experience for attendees, and through VR, this is exactly what event organisers are set to be able to do.

By taking the first steps into the world of VR, our new virtual venue tour is our promise to stay at the cutting edge of event technology. The Brewery already has a well established reputation for state-of-the-art facilities and, as we introduce the next phase in technological advancement, we will ensure that we continue to be at the forefront of an every-changing industry.

How to brand your corporate event


Running a corporate event is a big commitment for a business. You want people to leave the event, not only having enjoyed it, but also wanting to know more about your company or having more of an appreciation for it. There are many ways you can do this but we’ve chosen a few of the best ones to make your brand stand out at your event.


Social media has become a huge part of publicising and attending events. People want to check into places on Facebook or use a hashtag for their photos and posts on Instagram or Twitter. Therefore, as the company running the event, providing those prompts are vitally important for getting your brand out there.

For more information about making your event socially engaging, take a look at our blog about making your venue Instagram-worthy.


Logos are an endless source of branding opportunity as they can be added to many different aspects of an event. If food is being served, add the logo to any napkins, tablecloths, or plastic glasses. If not, water bottles and snack bars can also be branded with a logo.

Decorations can be branded too; balloons, bunting and signs are just a few of the options available. However, if the event requires more subtlety, using the colours of the logo as a colour scheme for decorations can also work well. If you’re holding your event at The Brewery, the LED light systems available in some of our rooms will enable you to add a delicate hue of your brand colours to the room itself.

If there are speakers at the event, the stage, lectern, and presentation slides can be tailored to display the logos of the company involved.

Through The Brewery’s in-house partnership with AVC Live, we’re also able to offer high quality audio-visual branding opportunities using the traditional features of our venue and rooms.

Food and drink

There’s nothing stopping the food at a corporate event from being just as customisable as the rest of the venue. Add a company logo to the icing of cupcakes or theme the courses of the meal around locations where the company is based, or the colours of the branding.

If you want to go even further, why not create a cocktail for the event which is personalised to the company or branding scheme? Have it reflect the colour scheme of the logo, or maybe some of the core values of the company itself, such as through the shape of the glass, the tailoring of the ingredients, and of course, the name of the drink.

Goodie bags

Everybody loves to leave an event with something to take home and that’s a perfect opportunity to publicise your brand outside and after the event. The bag itself can be customised and printed to display a logo of your company and the colour of the bag can also be tailored to reflect your brand. A good quality tote bag, not plastic, with a nice, subtle design, will be much more likely to be reused.

Similarly, the contents of the bag could also be customised. Popular choices for goodie bag fillers include boiled sweets with the logo of the company set inside them, company products, and useful items that people would want to keep, such as pens, bottle openers, umbrellas, post-it notes, or even portable chargers.

The key thing with goodie bags is to know your audience and tailor the contents and bag style to appeal to them. Also, it definitely depends on the event itself as to whether a goodie bag would be appropriate.


One subtle way to include branding in an event is through the clothing that staff are given to wear. The staff will be integrated into the event and therefore part of the branding available to publicise the company involved. If their uniform is branded with the company logo, it is a sure-fire way to get the logo noticed, even just at a glance.

If you’re looking to host a corporate event, The Brewery is perfectly outfitted to accommodate all specifications regarding branding your event. Take a look at our website to find out more.
