More than 150 new buyers from corporates, agencies and associations gathered for an evening of entertainment and hospitality on the stage of the world-famous Barbican Hall on Wednesday night.
The exclusive event started at the artists entrance with a red-carpet welcome before guests descended into backstage areas for drinks and canapés provided by Searcys, the venue’s catering partner.
Later on everyone was welcomed into the Barbican Hall where the best seats in the house provided unrivalled views of entertainment from the likes of renowned cellist Jay Jenkinson, Ember (courtesy of Sternberg Clarke) and Drum Works – a Barbican Artistic Associate who use drumming to inspire people creatively, give them confidence in their ideas and empower them to direct their own futures..
“Tonight was the perfect opportunity to celebrate everything the Barbican has to offer whilst highlighting the links between business events, arts and creative learning,” commented Oliver Hargreaves, head of sales at the Barbican.
Hargreaves said Barbican was delighted to take its guests backstage to see a totally new view of the venue. “It really was a one-off opportunity to experience one of the City of London’s most impressive venues from a different perspective,” he concluded.
