A corporate event at Dr Johnson's House, a charming 300-year-old townhouse, nestled amongst a maze of courts and alleys in the historic City of London.
Samuel Johnson, the writer and wit, lived and worked here in the middle of the eighteenth century, compiling his great Dictionary of the English Language in the garret.
Our client, an investment manager, was seeking to create an intimate evening where they could spend time with clients and contacts securing and strengthening their relationships, while offering them an unusual experience in a unique heritage venue with a real story to tell. We welcomed 100 guests for drinks and canapes, period-appropriate music from our harpist, and a tour of both the House and the Collection led by the curator herself.
We selected the venue (underscoring our client’s city credentials), created an invitation based on the dictionary theme, secured a caterer with experience working in heritage venues over four floors, and created a remarkable and memorable evening where our client could relax and talk with their clients.
