More than 150 new buyers from corporates, agencies and associations gathered for an evening of entertainment and hospitality on the stage of the Barbican Hall on 12 September.
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 the venue’s catering partner Searcys. 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,” comments Oliver Hargreaves, head of sales at the Barbican. “In particular, we were delighted to take our guests backstage to see a totally new view of the Barbican. It really was a one-off opportunity to experience one of the City of London’s most impressive venues from a different perspective.”
