20th Century Theatre
As a preferred supplier at the 20th Century Theatre we have met some lovely clients, none lovelier that the author Polly Samson. We were delighted to be asked to help organise the book launch for her book Perfect Lives.
As a friend of the theatre, Polly chose the venue for the launch party and asked that we based the theme around an English country garden, including an apple tree and a statue to replicate Eve on the front of the book.
We commissioned a sculptor to create the Eve-like statue, which was carved out of blocks of polycore with a hard exterior top coat and scenically painted to look like stone. The end result was stunning and the client decided to take her home!
We then focused on the garden theme and used old English balustrades as poseur tables and to surround the statue. We also built a 3m tall artificial apple tree in the corner of the room and used white cast iron garden furniture to complete the look.
Mustard catering provided the exceptional food and drink whilst guests enjoyed the sounds of some classical piano pieces played on the venues own grand piano.
