Moving Venue's Annual Gratitude Dinner at Landing 42
Thursday 19 October 2023
Earlier this week, VSL were invited along to an evening of fine dining and entertainment at London’s highest dedicated event space, Landing Forty Two, located in the iconic ‘Cheesegrater’ building on the 42nd floor of The Leadenhall Building.
Attending as guests of Moving Venue, Emma and Amelia were thrilled to be invited to the 2023 gratitude dinner. Arriving at Landing 42, immediately you are greeted with a sense of grandeur and exclusivity as you make your way up the escalators to the main entrance, and onto the dedicated elevators whisking guests up to the 42nd floor.
As London's highest private events venue, the space offers breath-taking panoramic views over the city where guests can marvel at London's iconic landmarks, such as The Shard, Tower Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral. The space can accommodate 300 for a standing reception and 220 for seated functions, providing a truly unique setting for a number of events; from company conferences and gala dinners to product launches and drinks receptions, the blank canvas venue can be tailored to suit a number of corporate occasions. The modern, industrial and stylish interior, combined with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views, created a stunning backdrop for what was to be a lavish evening to come.
The evening commenced with flowing English sparkling wine, beautifully presented lychee martinis and exquisite hand-crafted canapés; demonstrating the impeccable standards you can expect to receive from catering partner, Moving Venue.
