SW7 returned for a fourth year on July 5th 2016, showcasing the best of our venue. We joined up with the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and Natural History Museum and welcomed some of the biggest names in the events industry.
Three groups of 60 guests turned up to enjoy each museum and three different suppliers in each space.
We joined up with Moving Venue caterers, White Light production and Full Circle entertainment to create an immersive evening for our guests based around the Rio Olympics opening ceremony.
