Around the world at East Wintergarden

Ampersand was delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside Adding Value Events with their telecoms client for a post-Olympic celebration at one of our stunning venues, East Wintergarden.

The client wanted to recognise their hard working team for their dedication and commitment throughout the Olympics period, and East Wintergarden and Ampersand were thrilled to be involved.

After a successful and copious tasting, we waited with anticipation for the event to arrive. With a strong Olympic emphasis, we planned to create themed food stalls highlighting the most iconic dishes from five different nations, from British beef and ale pie to a selection of Indian curries.

When the day finally arrived, it was thrilling to see these dishes come to life in the transformed venue alongside a huge variety of entertainment including cheerleaders, footballers, and countless activities for the guests to interact with. A special appearance from Wenlock and Mandeville won over all in attendance, not least the Ampersand team! 800 very hungry guests descended upon the venue where they were greeted with our themed canapés. Particular favourites included our American mini burgers, delicious mini fish and chip cones and sizzling Thai prawns served in Oriental style decking.

As soon as the food stations opened, guests flocked to try their pick of our huge variety of dishes, commenting on the authenticity of each country’s food and creating a buzz throughout the lunch.

It was an honour to work with AddingValue at this event and we have received fantastic feedback: 94% of guests felt that the food and drinks were excellent. A success of Olympic proportions!
