Hampton Court Palace Festival 2023
Moving Venue catered the Hampton Court Palace Festival this June, offering a regal 'King's Dining Experience' with performances by Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs. Across 8 events in 2 weeks, 700 guests relished champagne in Privy Gardens, before a VIP reception and three-course dinner in the Great Hall. It was an honour to cater this fantastic event for the third year.
VIP Experiences in the Great Hall
For the third consecutive year, Moving Venue had the honour of being the dedicated hospitality catering partner at the esteemed Hampton Court Palace Festival. Over the course of two delightful weeks, we presented the ‘King’s Dining Experience’ in the Great Hall and Little Banqueting House, followed by a fantastic performance on the spectacular staging set within the Palace’s Clock Court.
The line-up this year featured talented artists such as Tom Jones, Kool and the Gang, Grace Jones, and the Kaiser Chiefs.
Prior to the tremendous concerts, guests enjoyed the lovely sunshine and indulged in some champagne amidst the beautiful Privy Gardens. They were then treated to an exclusive VIP drinks reception in the King’s Guard Chamber before ‘dining like kings’ surrounded by priceless tapestries. Guests enjoyed a delectable three-course menu featuring some of our favourite summer dishes.
Throughout the two weeks, we had the pleasure of catering 8 events, welcoming almost 700 guests to the exceptional hospitality experience. The feedback we received from our guests and clients was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed working with the Hampton Court Palace teams as well as IMG, the organisers of Hampton Court Palace Festival.
