Dish host 40 key event agencies at Banqueting House


Banqueting House, one of the six venues cared for by Historic Royal Palaces, alongside London event caterer Food by Dish, hosted 40 agency clients and suppliers on Saturday 22nd August for a spectacular dinner as part of London & Partners and The Leading Hotels of the World’s London Summer Weekend.

UK conference and incentive agency buyers discovered the very best that London has to offer over the weekend via a series of teambuilding challenges and product updates, before enjoying a theatrical dinner at Banqueting House.
The evening dinner highlighted the splendor of Banqueting House, which since 1622 has been the setting for elaborate court masques and performances.

The dinner featured a modern day twist on ‘court masques’ and theatre with UK-based agents from Bi Worldwide, NYS Corporate, Vista, HRG and Zibrant all donning extravagant masks to play their part in the evening’s festivities.

Dish served a starter of terrine, a main course of French trimmed breast of guinea fowl, leek cassoulet with potato and sage crisps, followed by egg shells filled with vanilla crème brûlée, raspberry consommé and a fresh raspberry and basil salad.

Milan Thakrar, Business Development Manager – Functions & Events, Historic Royal Palaces, said: “We wanted to incorporate the history of Banqueting House into the agency dinner and create an element of theatre with a modern take on a court masque. Banqueting House is an incredibly versatile venue, and this intimate affair allowed us to really showcase what the venue is capable of. Our partners for the evening shared our vision and helped us deliver a stunning memorable evening.”
