Evening Standard

The Challenge.

It’s not every day you get cabinet ministers, grassroots activists, start-up entrepreneurs, campaigners and celebrities all mingling in the same room.

To make it a night to remember, we were brought on board to create an exclusive and exciting experience for The Evening Standard’s Progress 1000 awards. The awards recognise leading Londoners in the fields of art, technology, science, politics, design, architecture, culture, philanthropy and business, and all those who make a real difference to London life.

The Solution.

We chose the 26 Leake Street venue for the event – three beautiful renovated railway arches under Waterloo Station – and oversaw the creative look and feel of the occasion, working with the client’s theme of diversity.

With clever production elements, we showcased London as a vision of creativity, with tunnel projections, live art, reflection areas and light installations.

We also led on the show running too, which saw former Chancellor of the Exchequer, and now Evening Standard Editor, George Osbourne attend the event and the then Home Secretary, Sajid Javid win an award for the most influential Londoner of 2018.

800 guests enjoyed the evening’s entertainment which included a memorable performance by the Kingdom Choir, who entertained guests at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
