It has been a busy few weeks of showcase events in the UK capital. Here's three highlights from what's been happening in venue land.

Tobacco Dock launched its Dream Circus Christmas party theme on 30 January with a cornucopia of colour and some spectacular circus entertainment. 

Dream Circus by Tobacco Dock Food will supply an evening of cirque entertainment for exclusive parties this November and December 2019, with prices starting from £94 per person.

Accommodating between 200 - 5,000 guests, medium and larger businesses can all benefit from a fully staffed, all-inclusive Christmas party. 

Performances from singers, magicians and DJs, plus stunts from acrobats and contortionists, will enhance the backdrop of Tobacco Dock’s unique location.

Under the starlit ceilings, a range of menu choices from formal, four-course seated, to standing and street food, as well as expertly mixed cocktails and select wines, is all on offer.

The video wall provides the perfect visual platform to promote branding and sponsorship opportunities, with endless capabilities to turn a blank canvas into a completely custom branded experience for all involved.
