The Event
Uptown Events has been working with JAMI on their events since 2017. They are a fantastic charity and always look to host their event at different unique venues. Previous events have been held at One Marleybone and The Royal Horticultural Society.

The gala dinner for 2019 took place at the newly restored Alexandra Palace Theatre which has just undergone a multi million pound restoration. The location was perfect being in North West London with plenty of car parking for the guests.

Before the venue was contracted Uptown Events produced CAD plans for the space to ensure that the number of expected guests could be seated for dinner. The CAD plans were revised closer to the date by Uptown Events when the final numbers were known.

Uptown Events were responsible for the management of all the production for the event and liaised with the venue’s fantastic team in house to make use of as much equipment at the venue in order to keep the event cost effective for the client.

Uptown worked closely with Creative Clinic who designed all the branding for the event and we used the logos and event design on the vinyls, gobo, banners and set.

The production for the event that Uptown Events supplied included a large set and screen on the stage with back projection as well as 4 x 65 inc relay screens around the room. Uptown Events managed all the sound and lighting on the night as well as installed the JAMI branding banners. Uptown Events filmed the event for the live feed on the screen and the content was edited post event for JAMI to use.

Uptown liaised with the Toast Master, Howard Robbins on the night to manage all the timings and content for the screens. The client was able to look after the guests and table hosts whilst Uptown Events ’show called’ the event.

The Uptown Events team on the night for the event included 2 x event managers, 1 x AV technician, 2 x sound techs, 1 x lighting tech, 1 x live camera operator and 1 x auto cue technician.
