EVENT SPACES: Bobby Moore Room and Pitch side

EVENT BRIEF: London Sport Awards 2018: A celebratory awards evening recognising individuals and organisations at grass roots level for sports and volunteer programmes across the city. 450 guests were invited to attend an evening of food, drinks and celebrations.

THE EVENT: Guests arrived on an astro-turf style red carpet, greeted by a cocktails and bubbles reception, with a selection of contemporary bowl food options served around the room including: Battered goujons of haddock with hand cut chips, crunchy tartar sauce and a juicy wedge of lemon; Moroccan chicken tagine with fragrant cous cous topped with coriander yoghurt; Thai vegetable curry with homemade polenta chips; Three bean cassoulet with fragrant rice.

Classic sports activities, including archery and boules, kept guests entertained before Sky Sports News presenter, David Garrido, hosted the awards. Across all categories, nominees selection videos were portrayed across the striking red stage and its two large screens supplied by AV projections. Taking place on International Women’s Day, tables were aptly named after Britain’s greatest female representatives, including Paula Radcliffe, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Susie Rodgers, who also presented awards alongside former England captain Faye White. Guests had the opportunity to grab a picture of themselves with not just one, but three of the most highly contested trophies in women’s sport including the FA Cup.

Thanks to the black tie and trainers theme, the night finished with a dance around the room in comfortable footwear and photos at pitch-side.

THE FEEDBACK: On behalf of the London Sport team, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your excellent team on the ground that helped us deliver our awards evening last night.

The professionalism and support provided was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. You really went out of your way to ensure everything worked smoothly. You were fantastic to work with. It made the evening run so smoothly as you were just brilliant.
