Chiswick Park, the business campus that is home to 65 companies, lit up the sky last Thursday (November 2) when it hosted one of the largest private firework displays ever seen in West London. The occasion marked the 10th year of Chiswick Park hosting this annual display.
An estimated 5,000 revelers attended the spectacular two-hour show, held by the lake in the heart of the landscaped campus, including many families from the local community in West London as well as ‘guests’ – that is, the employees working for companies based on-site.
“It’s a celebration for guests, offering them an opportunity to bring friends and family, and also an evening out for people from the local community,” commented Carly Gibbs, events manager for Chiswick Park’s estate management team, Enjoy-Work.
“We wanted this to be a memorable evening,” added Gibbs, who oversees the various events and courses available to guests in Chiswick Park.
Live music was provided by pop-rock band Bloc Off The Wall. The band was led by singer-songwriter Adam Isaac, a semi-finalist in the BBC’s The Voice UK, and provided by Henley-based talent agents Eight Ray Music.
In addition, a colourful assortment of street entertainers including fire jugglers and LED-illuminated costumed performers, were also provided by the corporate events agency Calmer Karma.
Some 80 yellow-coated Enjoy-Work staff were on site as ‘magic makers’ – an echo of the ‘games-makers’ of the 2012 Olympics – to assist and guide visitors to the campus. On-site catering outlets including The Union, Moot and Kafé23 were joined by a variety of off-site caterers in providing a wide range of food and drinks. The Metropolitan Police supported the event, and extra private security was onsite to ensure visitor safety.
