The Barbican to host James Bond evening for clients’ eyes only

The Barbican has been given a license to thrill as it hosts an evening dedicated to James Bond for clients culminating in a screening of the latest blockbuster in the franchise ‘Spectre’.

The Bond evening is being run in partnership with Searcys and will see key and valued clients from across the Searcys portfolio invited to attend the event on Thursday, 5th November.

Guests will be treated to drinks in the Garden Room before enjoying the screening of Spectre in Cinema 1. Following the film Searcys will be showcasing its catering with guests having the opportunity to network while enjoying the latest food and drink innovations in the conservatory.

The Bond evening has been arranged as a Searcys celebration of the company successfully retaining the catering contract for events at the Barbican.

Johanna Byrane, head of sales at Searcys said: “We are delighted to be hosting this event in conjunction with the Barbican. We have built a strong partnership with the team over recent years and we are thrilled that we are able to continue to work successfully together in the future.

“With Searcys and the Barbican being iconic British brands, I can think of no better event to mark the occasion than a film that includes one of the biggest brands in the world – Bond. We hope that our, and the Barbican’s, guests enjoy our showing of ‘Spectre’.”

“The Barbican has had a great affinity with Bond since we hosted the ‘Designing 007: Fifty years of Bond style’ exhibition back in 2012,” comments Jackie Boughton, Head of Sales at Barbican Business Events. “This event will not only celebrate one of fiction’s greatest characters but introduces clients to the fantastic event spaces on offer here at the Barbican. We’re sure the martinis on offer will leave attendees shaken, but not stirred ahead of the tours and film.

“Spectre is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2015 so where better to watch it than the Barbican? You only live twice after all…”
