Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals
Charity fundraising event, Guildhall, London
If there in one thing we all love doing at ITM, then it is running fundraising events. And though we have done so many, this one stands out for the sheer magnificence of the venue as well as the challenges that accompanied it. The theme of the fundraising gala dinner for the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity at London’s Guildhall was ‘HeartYou’
The black-tie event for 400 was held in the Great Hall – another testing-shaped room, with acoustic issues to overcome due to the location of the in-built speakers. Added to this, the drinks reception was to be held down in the crypt, where there was no power! (we overcame that too, with the use of LED battery lights & wireless battery PA System).
The only place to build the set and the stage in the Great Hall in order to maximise numbers of guests, was in front of the service doors where the waiting staff would be busy serving food and wine. Undaunted we built a 10 metre branded stage /set, in front of the back wall and doors with space to the sides, discreetly draped to allow the waiting staff ease of access. This ensured the presentations, awards and auction could be presented professionally and the eight additional 75” monitors made sure no one missed a trick throughout the evening. With the colour branded ceiling wash and gobos, the room was picture perfect. A perfect backdrop to net £250k for the charity.
“It is so nice to be able to call up ITM and know that they will deliver the job; this one was not easy but they made the room look beautiful, listened to our brief and gave us advice on how and where we should make changes to our brief so we could have the best event possible. They are my favourite AV company to work with because of their ‘ can do’ attitude and wonderful team”.Harriet Ryan
