Bankside Venues welcomed more than 80 event industry professionals on Wednesday evening (4 September) to its Spectacular showcase event in central London.
The event, which took place at the Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe, began with canapés and a wine reception while guests including representatives from HSBC, NBC Universal, BSI and Working Title Films enjoyed views of London. Attendees were also able to speak to representatives from venues such as The Jerwood Space, Southwark Cathedral, Vinopolis and Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe regarding event packages, and Bankside Venues announced its latest venue spaces including Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café and Borough Market’s new Market Hall.
Food and drink was supplied by the Swan and featured Galloway beef wellington with a grape mustard; citrus cured Cornish mackerel with a tomato water and olive; truffled Devon quail eggs served with brioche soldiers; and a roast chicken croquette with grain mayonnaise.
Peter Williams, chief executive of Better Bankside, which runs Bankside Venues, said: "It’s fantastic to see so many of our wonderful venues and suppliers come together for the Spectacular, demonstrating the exciting potential of hosting an event in Bankside. We really do have something for everyone."
