Banqueting House

Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 16:30

Banqueting House, one of six venues cared for by independent charity Historic Royal Palaces, recently welcomed the University of Cambridge who hosted a celebration event at the venue to engage key stakeholders in London.

The event saw 250 guests in attendance at Banqueting House – a mixture of alumni, stakeholders and senior representatives from the Colleges and University of Cambridge. Guests enjoyed a welcome reception followed by a dinner with a number of academic and student speakers, along with video content tailored to the event.

The event featured a high level of production across all content elements to deliver impact and excitement, as well as engagement with the messaging and aspirations of the Dear World…Yours, Cambridge campaign.

State-of-the-art video mapping played a significant part in the event, with the Banqueting House team working alongside White Light and London agency johnson banks, who created Cambridge’s campaign theme and branding, to create an immersive, inspiring experience. White Light supplied all technical solutions, which include lighting, audio and power distribution.

Rachel Mortimer Holdsworth, Events Manager at Cambridge University, said: “We chose Banqueting House for our event because of its location, heritage, size and reputation, as well as the quality of its preferred supplier list, the flexibility of the venue to accommodate internal projections and of course, the beautiful Rubens ceiling.

“The Banqueting House team have been professional, supportive and flexible. They have provided us with sound advice throughout the entire event management process, and due to the strength of their relationships with their suppliers, it has been a very smooth link up with all those involved.”

Jennifer Lockham, Head of Banqueting House, adds: “We were delighted to welcome the University of Cambridge to Banqueting House. This was a really exciting event for us as it featured extensive video mapping on the internal walls and windows of the Main Hall. Rose Julian, Senior Event Executive at Banqueting House, has been working with White Light for the past 18 months to enable us to offer a product of this kind to clients hosting events at the venue. This was the largest scale video mapping event we’ve hosted at Banqueting House and alongside White Light we undertook considerable testing of the new technology to ensure everything ran smoothly.”
