An Evening of Pure Splendour
This evening dinner highlighted the splendour of Banqueting House, which since 1622 has been the setting for elaborate court masques and performances.
When it comes to showcasing Banqueting House’s versatility for hosting smaller-scale events, this evening did it. The event saw the Main Hall divided in two to accommodate the reception and dinner. Fisher Productions created a theatrical divide in the form of a theatre curtain for the big reveal of the long banquet-style dinner table. While Hayford & Rhodes dressed the space with show-stopping flowers.

What They Ate

What They Listened To
Guests entered dinner to the sound of an operatic performance by lead vocalist from the ‘Masques’, Cecilia. This was supplied by Young Guns.
