In pictures: The Brewery celebrates summer season with secret garden party

London venue The Brewery welcomed 170 guests last night (13 August) to its summer showcase, themed around a secret garden party.


Guests to the event included the venue’s corporate clients, such as HSBC, NBC Universal, Barclays and American Express, as well as industry professionals. They were greeted by entertainers dressed as hedges, provided by Contraband, and were able to enjoy a selection of cocktails and dishes prepared by The Brewery’s executive chef Tom Gore.

This included cured salmon with pea veloute and kale and gorgonzola canapés, as well as suckling pig rolls with crackling and apple and peach sauce, salmon and prawn ceviche with avocado and squash cake.

Gore also spoke to attendees at the venue's live canapé bar, where guests were also able to order their own bespoke canapés and talk to the chef about the ingredients used in the food.

Other highlights of the event included a video wall, provided by the venue's in-house production partner AVC Live, as well as tours around The Brewery every 30 minutes so that corporate guests could view the venue's other event spaces.

The event was held in The Brewery’s marquee, which this summer has helped the venue generate its highest revenue levels recorded in June and July. The space has hosted 37 parties, welcoming more than 3,000 guests with 61% occupancy during the period.

Simon Lockwood, creative director at The Brewery, said: "This has been our first year back in the summer party market since being able to use the courtyard again for events. The marquee has become an oasis, not only for summer parties, but also for weddings, conferences, exhibitions and private dinners from companies in the publishing, technology, financial, insurance, retail and fashion industries."

Lockwood also told Event The Brewery has seen a 40% rise in the number of events held during June and July this year throughout the whole venue, a total of 89 events compared to 53 events seen in the same months during 2013. More than 19,500 guests have come to the venue during the same period this year, a 34% rise on last year's figures.
