Artist Ambush – this battle helps their battle

Last updated December 7th, 2016

Snap Events Team Leader – Antonia Avedine talks to us about putting on their live event at Cargo, London on Weds 7th December
What better way to showcase your musical talents than at a live event! Snap Events our 2nd Postgraduate Diploma team to host their event will be at Cargo in Shoreditch. The event hosted by the Snap Events team (25 in total) will be assessed as part of their end of course project.
In just 3 weeks they have been tasked with coordinating a live event in central London with a budget of £1000 … not easy. There is an awful lot to consider and all they have learnt on the course is put into play. An important aspect of the nights’ success is the entertainment. They have been very lucky to have duo Tala Al- Khudayri and Emily Katharine Stephenson-Rose on The Team who produced an amazing song and video “As One” for the event. The girls recorded it in central London last week and there wasn’t a dry eye in the office when we played this! The Team have also solicited the talents of family and friends to perform on the night! There will be 7 artists in total including Amy Victoria Thomas from AYEM, super talented singer MM and spoken word artist Jenniah Sense. After each performance The Team will make a collection from the audience and the act that has raised the most money (for the charity) at the end of the night will be the winner!
We spoke to one of The Team leaders Antonia Avedine about what it takes to put on such an event, she said “we’ve certainly honed our negotiation skills…we were given a budget of £1000 by Event Academy and this needed to be used as a deposit for reserving venues, entertainment, drinks/canapés etc.” We asked how she managed to get such a great venue, Antonia said “to secure the venue we managed to negotiate them down to £200, some venues wanted a hefty deposit and a minimum spend of £2000! Cargo have also offered us 10% towards the charity if we reach a bar spend of £5000! So it looks like its going to be a big night in more ways than one!”
The fundraising target was £4000 and today The Team has reached the phenomenal sum of £3948.91 (Tues 6th Dec)! a huge well done to all the team! Antonia says the fundraising has been great fun the whole team have pulled together, the boys have waxed their legs and have tried their hand at being make up artists, the results of which can be seen on instagram!. In addition team member Joe really excelled himself by completing a triathlon (no less) and all money raised will go to Teenage Cancer Trust.

Well done to all the Snap Events Team. We are sure the event will be hugely successful, we wish you all the best of luck!
