The gala dinner attended by 250 event organisers provided an opportunity to experience the London venue’s versatile event spaces, high-tech audio-visual capabilities and inspired menus created by catering partner, CH&CO.
Guests entered the venue through Dean’s Yard with the stunning backdrop of an illuminated Westminster Abbey. From here they were guided to the Hoare Memorial Hall where reception drinks and canapés were served.
Guests then made their way to the venue’s largest event space, the Assembly Hall, where multi-aspect intelligent lighting displays illuminated the room including the impressive domed ceiling. Once everyone was seated, the lights dimmed, and the evening got into full swing with a performance of the Greatest Showman by Club Mob. Robin Parker, General Manager of Church House Westminster, welcomed the guests and introduced the Head Chef, Joseph Lovell and Sous Chef, Davide Garzitto by means of a pre-recorded video to explain the finer details of the evening’s menu.
The evening continued with songs between each course by Club Mob and by Valeria, who performed a spellbinding routine of contortion and balance on a rotating mirror ball.
Commenting the following day Parker said, “Our objective for the evening was to show exactly what the venue could do and judging by the amazing comments we have received we have achieved that. For many years we have had an excellent reputation holding conferences and meetings, so it is great to be able to show clients the versatility of the venue!”.
