Event Spaces

A circus themed awards show that had a last minute venue change!

Focus initially worked to deliver this event at the Guildhall, but just 72 hours before the awards, the event space was changed. Working to very strict deadlines, Focus adapted every production element so a fantastic event was still delivered, now at Tobacco Dock.

The theme of this event was echoed throughout the several event spaces. For the drinks receptions, the 400 guests walked straight into a circus, complete with performers, interactive props and many photo opportunities. Focus’ installation of red velvet draping elements created the sense of a real circus tent.

To deliver this award show’s grand video screening, a large LED screen was constructed, raised up on an eye catching red stage.

The Vaults at Tobacco Dock provided an ideal room for a mysterious and intriguing dance floor space. LED coloured lighting encouraged guests to move around and discover the secluded nightclub area. The central dance floor was surrounded by mood lighting and circus tent draping. Performance dancers and a renowned DJ completed the party space.
