City of London
Tower Bridge walkway.
It’s a privilege to provide entertainment at some of London’s most notable landmarks.
We love quirky venues, but these remarkable buildings pose a variety of challenges.
Museums, Art galleries, Monuments; building open to the public during standard working hours demand slick load-ins, rapid set-ups and efficient sound checks. The timer starts the moment the doors close to the public. It’s a close shaven hour, there’s always a lot to do, with particular constraints. The Tower Bridge walkway is no exception.
However these challenges all add to the buzz. The need for speed hones the anticipation of the night ahead. There are two walkways on Tower Bridge. The glass floor adds to the dizzying height. Watch boats, busses, cars and people streaming below, while on higher ground the twinkling lights of London delight.
Take for example the Infra Red’s Christmas party. In the East Walkway, Jo eased guests into the evening with her sultry vocals, accompanied by David on keys. Smooth jazz standards delivered with easy charm. Assisting with the warm up, hot off the heels of the X Factor, our magician evoked oohs and ahhs of wonder. Any shrinking violets were eased from their hideaway by a super cool but utterly reassuring caricaturist. Meanwhile the party band and a Wheathill DJ set up in the West Walkway.
With the band set and pudding served, Wheathill Heather on sax led guests from one walkway to another. Five forms of entertainment seamlessly provided over the busy traffic of London’s most famous river.
