A fantastic opportunity has become available for your brand awareness program through sponsoring our bandstand area at Gabriel’s Wharf on London’s infamous South Bank.
We recently teamed up with Coin Street Community Builders, the social enterprise responsible for the regeneration and development of the South Bank in the 1980s, and who continue to work tirelessly to provide a safe and welcoming space for all visitors and residents to live in, work in and enjoy. Coin Street are entirely not-for-profit, seeing all revenue generated from lettings income, gallery exhibitions, indoor and outdoor event spaces, and more, being invested back into the local community.
In December 2020 We collaborated with Coin Street to activate the purpose-built bandstand area at weekends, introducing warming and eclectic live music from emerging talent from across London and the south east.
Our main objective was to bring footfall to the independent retailers at Gabriel’s Wharf during which, I’m sure you would agree, was a very difficult time for everyone in 2020.
We are pleased to report the events were a resounding success. We saw a positive response from the retailers with daily sales figures improved due to the increased footfall. We also saw a welcoming response from the general public – families, friends, couples, shoppers – all were seen to be thoroughly enjoying the free entertainment provided, within a safe outdoor environment. On a busy day the central bandstand saw around 150-200 people per/hour and this is something we need your help to capitalise on, through 2021.
We are looking to host more live events but these events come at a cost, and as these are free entry events we cannot continue without support. We continue to implement the necessary measures to ensure a safe environment in response to COVID-19, and can guarantee that this will continue to develop in line with guidance.
So we have put together some packages to raise funds for our events to go ahead, please see below.
By sponsoring us you will not only be supporting local independent retailers but also the live events industry where we can employ sound and lighting engineers, musicians and comedians.
And finally, the most important thing is what these events will do for the local community and general public as a whole, to once again enjoy live entertainment in one of London’s iconic places.
With our exclusive gold package you will enjoy the benefit of
