Elexu Creative Live Success!
It was the biggest and most nerve-wracking day for the Elexu team so far, weeks of preparation had gone into our first community event and we were all determined to make it a massive success.
Running short of time, a handful of interns pile into Via, Canary Wharf and frantically set up, to our surprise there are guests arriving already, half an hour before the start time, maybe this is going to be bigger than we expected?
It’s 6pm and the doors officially open, already there are at least 20 people in the venue and by 8pm we had checked around 120 people off the guest list! The venue was buzzing and the positive feedback coming from our guests was really overwhelming!
Our staff were strategically placed across the venue, from the Elexu booth, film room and the live drawing area, all of which were running fantastically smoothly. Despite the slight glitch with the PA system right at the beginning of the night everything had run according to plan.
There was such an array of talent performing that evening and the enthusiasm and creativity of our guests made the event the success it was! We could not have done without their support!
