The event brought together 320 guests, organisers and participants of the annual charity football match, which took place on Sunday 16th June, to enjoy a celebration in Illuminate with star-studded guestlist and live performances.
Guests enjoyed a drinks reception on Level 4 before moving to Level 5 for a delicious tailor-made three-course meal served by Moving Venue, set against the backdrop of the London skyline through Illuminate’s panoramic window. Dinner was interspersed with energetic performances and Unicef speeches, concluding with an exclusive performance from singer and Soccer Aid for Unicef co-founder Robbie Williams with lighting, audio, set and staging delivered by White Light.
Jodie Guilford, Business Development and Marketing Manager at the Science Museum says, “We were thrilled to have hosted the Soccer Aid for Unicef Gala in Illuminate together with our event partners Moving Venue and White Light, playing our part in celebrating what continues to be such an incredible fundraising event every year. With panoramic views over the London skyline from Illuminate, guests had a fantastic evening enjoying all that the venue and the event have to offer!”
Roxanne Portnoi at Unicef says, “We were so excited to have hosted the inaugural Soccer Aid for Unicef Gala at such a dynamic and modern space. The Science Museum, White Light and Moving Venue were a pleasure to work with and the event was a resounding success.”
