Smith & Wollensky — Theatre After Party

We recently got a chance to work with Belka Productions again at another exciting theatre event — last year, we organised the after party in the Hotel Cafe Royal, following the premiere of Uncle Vanya.

This year, the theatre company have taken on another iconic Chekhov drama — Three Sisters.

Following the premiere performance, the cast, crew and guests headed over to Smith & Wollensky for the after party, where London Event Productions had everything set up and waiting for them.

For lighting, we scattered 18 wireless uplighters around the room, and placed battery-operated teacandles on the tables to imitate twinkling firelight and create a cosy, intimate atmosphere.

Our sister company at Stormont London were tasked with finding a suitable band to provide background music for the event and as usual they delivered the best of the best — a sophisticated vintage jazz and swing band.

The LEP team provided full AV support for the band, as well as stage wash to their performance area to bathe them in light.

We also supplied a custom step and repeat backdrop, which was first used outside the theatre before the show, then moved to the restaurant for the afterparty. Our professional photographer was on site all evening to capture every moment and photograph the guests on the red carpet.
