OVERVIEW

Lit in bright neons, Battersea Evolution was the perfect venue for the Pop Art inspired Superdrug “Fab at 50” Anniversary Party. 

The high stree health retailer hosted a huge party and charity fundraiser with their staff to celebrate 50 years in business. The event was organised by Well Pleased Events and took place on 22nd November, 2014.

600 guests attended the event including 180 VIPS. A five course dinner was served by Smart Hospitality featuring a bespoke POP ART menu and theming throughout the venue. Three tiered dining was installed with round tables, rectangle benches and seating booths.

 

THE FINER DETAILS

Guests arrived into the Atrium via a Pop Art gallery, with VIPs making their way onto the venue mezzanine for their private drinks reception whilst the guests made their way through the under mezzanine tunnel into the bar area.  The space within the venue allowed for the two entirely separate spaces, including a central bar downstairs and Pop Art themed lounge areas on the raised mezzanine level for the VIPs.

Using the extensive rigging that Battersea Evolution boasts, the client dressed the bar area with a huge, hanging “Fab at 50” custom built banner.  Guests walked underneath the banner into the main dining room.  Due to the height of the venue and the way in which the structure is built, the client was able to install three tiers of seating for guests, giving multiple dining rooms.

In the dining rooms, guests sat at booth tables, bar tops and large round tables to enjoy their bespoke Pop Art menu designed and produced by Smart Hospitality. 

 Post-dinner the guests danced to live acts and DJs into the early hours.

Why Battersea Evolution was the right venue for this event

Flexibility

The client had the ability to build multiple raised tiers for dining

Space

The client could create multiple, exciting spaces within one venue. This gave the guests a variety of experiences on the evening. 

Width

The end on stage production was so impactful due to the width and height of the venue

No obstructions

Creative ideas could be rigged and hung all over the venue with no obstruction. i.e. FAB at 50 sign or gallery in the Atrium
