Bompas & Parr to offer 'spectacle' with new catering arm

Bompas & Parr wants to bring the "spectacle" from its events to a wide variety of people with its new catering division.

The culinary events specialist created a "Feast of flowers" at its studio in Bermondsey last week in partnership with Perrier-Jouët.

Harry Parr, director at Bompas & Parr, said: "We want to bring the spectacle and experience that we have in doing events all around the world and bring it to people here in London where they can experience the magical things that we have been up to over the past 10 years.

"The idea with the catering service is to allow all sorts of different people to experience our food in an environment they need to have food and be entertained at the same time rather than the food being part of the event."

Parr added that the floral theme ties in with people wanting to take pictures of their meal: "We’re launching our catering service with a feast of flowers because flowers are beautiful and look amazing in photographs and we’ve noticed that when people go to meals all they want to do is take photos and post Instagram Stories the entire time. So what better subject matter than to base a whole meal around than flowers?"
