Following a stringent pitching process, Chiswick House and Gardens has appointed Sleek Collective to manage the next three years of winter activations.

Sleek Events, the Richmond-based boutique agency, created Sleek Collective for this partnership to bring more people to the historic house and gardens over the winter season. Sleek Collective was formed by Sleek Events with a group of freelance event professionals to manage this and similar projects. Visitors will have a range of ticket options to view the gardens after dark, enjoying curated light installations and a pop-up winter restaurant.

Sam Glenister-Batey, head of commercial activity and marketing at Chiswick House and Gardens, commented: “Sleek Collective wowed us with their imaginative options to bring our venue to life over the winter. We’ll welcome visitors to After Dark on Thursday to Sunday in the evenings from November 15 – December 30.”

Jennifer Davidson, founder of Sleek Events and one of four directors at Sleek Collective, added: “This new business was formed to deliver large, multi-faceted and complex event programmes requiring specialist support. We’re excited to be kicking off with this three-year contract with Chiswick House and Gardens.”
