Peanuts for breakfast at Somerset House private view event

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 14:30

Over 100 event professionals and local businesses gathered at Somerset House on Thursday 24th January for an exclusive breakfast private view of their landmark ‘Good Grief Charlie Brown! Celebrating Snoopy and the Enduring Power of Peanuts’ exhibition.

Guests were able to rub noses with Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Peppermint Patty and the rest of the Peanuts gang at the invitation-only event held in the Embankment Galleries, where the exhibition runs until 3rd March 2019.

After enjoying a breakfast reception, guests browsed the eclectic mix of exhibits, including original drawings by the famous cartoon’s creator, Charles M. Schulz, alongside works including videos and interactive installations inspired by Peanuts from some of today’s most exciting contemporary artists.   

In a speech during the breakfast reception, Somerset House’s Deputy Director, Diana Spiegelberg, revealed that she had been asked by the exhibition’s curator to lend her own childhood Snoopy toy. 

The Somerset House Corporate Events team also announced the launch of their unique private dining experiences within the exhibition. Event professionals are able to enjoy exclusive access to the exhibition alongside a Peanuts-themed private dining experience on selected nights up until March. Alongside the new private dining option, other Peanuts packages are also available including breakfast and an evening canapé reception.

Jenny Freestone, Head of Corporate Events at Somerset House, commented: “Since the exhibition opened on 25th October, many thousands of visitors from around the world have come to see it. We wanted to celebrate its success with event professionals and local businesses who may not have had a chance to experience the inspirational cartoons and drawings which resonate with everyone.”
