The Science Museum in South Kensington will host this year’s Soccer Aid for Unicef Gala in its new two-level space Illuminate this summer, together with catering and AV partners; Moving Venue and White Light.

The event will bring together 320 guests, organisers and participants of the annual charity football match, which takes place this year on June 16. Guests will enjoy a drinks reception in Level 4 before moving to Level 5 for a three-course meal served by Moving Venue, set against the backdrop of the London skyline through Illuminate’s panoramic window.

Dinner will be interspersed with performances and Unicef speeches, concluding with a performance from singer and Soccer Aid for Unicef co-founder Robbie Williams – with lighting, audio, set and staging delivered by White Light.

Jodie Guilford, business development and marketing manager at the Science Museum, commented: “We are thrilled to be hosting the Soccer Aid for Unicef Gala in Illuminate together with our event partners Moving Venue and White Light, playing our part in celebrating what continues to be such an incredible fundraising event every year.

“With panoramic views over the London skyline from Illuminate, we anticipate guests will have a fantastic evening enjoying all that the venue and the event have to offer!”

Roxanne Portnoi, special events manager at Unicef, added: “We are so excited to be hosting the inaugural Soccer Aid for Unicef Gala at such a dynamic and modern space. The Science Museum, White Light and Moving Venue have been a pleasure to work with and we are so excited to see the event delivered.”
