Gala dinner for the University of Cambridge's London alumni including David Attenborough, Clare Balding and Stephen Fry.
Guests were welcomed into Banqueting House by Cambridge Constables in traditional dress before being shown into the Undercroft for a pre-dinner drinks reception. From there, they were invited to the Main Hall for dinner.
The main component of this event was the production, aided by White Light. Footage of Cambridge was projected onto the windows in the Main Hall to create the effect of looking out of the window at well-known Cambridge scenes. The rolling footage of iconic Cambridge images, which softly played during dinner, included punting, picnics in front of the colleges, students walking through cloisters and work taking place in a science lab. This helped immerse guests in the Cambridge way of life so they could reminisce about their own experiences there.
By Word of Mouth designed a dinner menu that reflected the ground-breaking, world-beating and life-changing achievements of the university, while also demonstrating a contemporary, elegant and stylish approach.
