Our Work

Asthma UK Breathtaking Ball

Thursday, 21 June 2012

The Dorchester Hotel, London 2012

Having previously worked with Rosie Lightfoot at CLIC Sargent, mclcreate were delighted to be asked for the second year to support the production and delivery of this fantastic charity fundraising event, primarily geared around raising awareness to this potentially fatal condition. With the event budget and access timings being as tight as ever, we had just 2 hours to install a full plasma relay system comprising 8 plasma screens for a silent auction which included slide support, along with a full band PA system for Beverley Knight and up-and-coming operatic star Becky-Jane Taylor. We also needed to construct and install two ground supported truss structures for front of house and dance floor lighting.

We managed to deliver to this tight deadline, whilst also helping to de-rig the AV from the previous conference event held in the same room, and working around the catering staff who were busily setting up and dressing the 35 guest dining tables.

The event, compared by English actor Edward Fox, was a huge success, and managed to raise over £125,000 for the charity in around 4 hours.

Cabaret for the event was superbly delivered by Ola and James Jordan from ‘Strictly come dancing’ fame, performing four amazing routines in front of the assembled invitees, with a DJ providing a chance for the guests ‘strut their stuff’ and take the event to its conclusion.

The Breathtaking Ball was a fantastic success, Rosie Lightfoot, Special Events Officer commented...

“I have chosen to work with mclcreate on charity special events for the last 3 years, at my previous charity, and brought them over to work on the production for events at my current charity, as for each event they have worked tirelessly to ensure that the production still has that wow effect but within a tight charity budget! .”
