The Porter Tun
House Macabre Halloween Party
House Macabre saw 500 guests descend on the Brewery for a fright night dinner they would never forget.
Following a tantalizing invitation campaign in the lead up to the party guests arrived to witness the scene of a car crash, what followed was designed to take guests out of their comfort zone as they made their accession to purgatory, designed as a stale waiting room, before making their way to the haunted House Macabre.
Designed and delivered by the Brewery this dinner highlighted the high quality and flexibility of the venues in-house services. The sets and production were designed by the creative team and produced by incumbent production company AVC Live.
The food served on the night received rave reviews and was selected from the Brewery's standard three course menu with little touches such as cocktails served from water coolers and edible fingers in boxes adding the fun finishing touches to the stunning dinner event.
The venue looked insane, from arrival with the car outside and the actors as you came in, to the waiting room with the cocktails in water coolers. Well done to the team who put this together it was such a great night.
I would actually pay a lot of money to come along to that! The food, the waiting staff where all brilliant! The beef dish was so good I did not have space for pudding!
IBM Watson Summit London
Produced by George P Johnson, IBM chose the Brewery to host the Watson Summit London which was billed as a festival of disruption.
The event saw IBM take over the whole Brewery site and welcome 900 guests to hear key speakers such as astronaut, commander Chris Hadfield and rugby world cup winner Mike Tindall.
The flexibility of the venue allowed the different spaces to be used for the main plenary, syndicate rooms, lounges and offices with the guests easily able to flow between them. The food stall menu chosen for lunch was perfect for the tech crowd with a mixture of warm boxes, salads and desserts designed to be served so they can be eaten whilst still checking out the fascinating exhibition.
A custom branded SSID was created for the wi-fi along with additional internet lines setup to support the dream pods around the venue all supplied by the Brewery's in-house IT team Panoptics.
Well what can I say.. you guys rocked! Flawless execution from Day 1 – you really do have a great team and I would want to work here again in a heartbeat!
Puma - Usain Bolt Forever Fastest Press Conference
The Brewery was given the honour of being the location for Usain Bolt's farewell press conference celebrating his legendary status and long track and field career.
Working alongside agency International Orange the Porter Tun was transformed into the setting for the event. Large screens showed congratulatory messages from celebrities and fans with tiered seating built to house press who had gathered from all over the world.
The Brewery is ideal for this type of brand driven event as there so many locations throughout the customer experience where branding can be easily displayed, including in this case the staff as they were dressed head to toe in cool Puma attire.
All the specific catering needs for the event were met with ease including making jerk chicken for Usain and his team, that was so good he asked for seconds!
Overall we had a really great experience at the Brewery and with the Brewery’s crew.
We are looking back to a very smooth successful event and a happy client.
