Corporate guests enjoy Delacroix private view and dinner at National Gallery

02 March 2016

Delegates at a conference held at The National Gallery topped off a busy day with a delicious dinner in the Wohl Room created by Jackson Gilmour. Before dinner the guests enjoyed a private view of the highly-acclaimed “Delacroix and the Rise of Modern Art” exhibition which is showing in the Temporary Exhibition Space until May 22, 2016.

The menu reflected the feeling of spring in the air with a starter of tea-smoked salmon with pickled cucumber and crème fraiche, followed by fillet of beef with creamy smoked potato  and roasted cauliflower and finished off with a dessert of iced blackberry parfait with a sloe gin sabayon and lemon rosemary crumb. 

“Being able to offer guests a private view of a high-profile exhibition is a great way to launch a corporate event,” says Anne. “The sense of exclusivity and glamour is a compliment to the guests and combined with welcome drinks it serves as a real ice breaker. The Wohl Room at The National Gallery is a real show-stopper for a dinner venue so guests felt more and more indulged as the evening progressed.”

The National Gallery launched its venue hire in 2015 and Events Co-ordinator, Alicia Masson, is enthusiastic about its adaptability. She says: “The versatility and sheer size of the National Gallery means each event is a truly bespoke experience. With venue hire still evolving, the Events Team at the National Gallery are developing and exploring what can be achievedto produce a truly unforgettable experience for everyone.”
