RG Jones Project Manager, Matt Sussex headed up the event for RG Jones and appointed legendary lighting designer and show producer Steve Nolan to design the lighting whilst Matt focused on ensuring the acoustics created an atmosphere fitting to this extraordinary space.

Representing over 800 years of London history, Guildhall is home to the City of London Corporation and seven flexible event spaces, offering unique settings for events of up to 900 guests at the heart of the City.

Clink Events, the external catering service run by innovative prisoner training scheme The Clink Charity, has been named one of 16 eligible caterers for Guildhall, London and will now be seeing a lot of our chaps at the many events that take place daily at this iconic venue in the centre of the capital.

Chris Moore, chief executive of The Clink Charity, said: “We are thrilled that Clink Events has been appointed by Guildhall as a eligible caterer. To be recognised by a renowned historical venue, such as Guildhall, and to be listed alongside other well-established caterers is an outstanding achievement for the Clink Events team.”

Noa Burger, head of responsible business at the City of London Corporation, said: “We are very excited about our partnership with the Clink charity. This linkup will provide a real opportunity for prisoners to learn new skills in the catering business, develop their expertise and support them to resettle into the community.  We want to encourage and support the capital’s charities and responsible businesses, to help them change the lives of hundreds of thousands of Londoners. It’s a brilliant way to demonstrate your organisation’s values, engage your staff and make a real difference.”

RG Jones Director, John Carroll agrees: “We have been focusing on our CSR this year to ensure we are meeting our commitments.  Opportunities for significant shared value can be gained through partnering, maximising effectiveness for addressing major issues for society. The Clink Charity are offering the resource to improve the overall quality of life. A second chance. By tapping into the resources and expertise of the other businesses, we can work together to find solutions to critical social challenges.”

This was the first showcase that had taken a modern approach on the Amphitheatre successfully.  We appreciate your support on this event and how it all came together, the space looked perfect and we’re looking forward to working with you again.
