Wine Down at Halkin Arcade

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland’s mission is to create and recreate inspiring places and neighbourhoods, delivering value for customers, shareholders and co-investors with its place-making expertise.

Challenge

Grosvenor were looking to create an event to support the local retailers, the local residents and to create a great community event in Halkin Arcade. It was important that we maintained a great community feel to the four consecutive events throughout September as Halkin Arcade is a lovely contained space we wanted to replicate this with creating a lovely event in response.

Delivery

We worked with local retailers such as The Fine Cheese Company, The Alfred Tennyson, Mossiman, Rococo Chocolate and the Hari. Each retailer had a gazebo to set up their shop and sell to the local community, wine and cheese were the main focus of the event but each retailer had a different spin on what this meant to them and there ended up being a great array on offer.

There was also some fantastic music scheduled each Thursday. We booked the London Dance Orchestra, who played a great selection of jazz classics throughout the day.
