Starting their journey in a desert oasis, guests were soon called to dinner by a troop of Dhol drummers, where they were guided through the Open Ocean – alongside magnificent floating jellyfish – into Ice: the museum’s central hall. As they took their seats, guests were surrounded by images from the breathtaking film ‘Chasing Ice’. As the evening progressed, guests were taken through the sights and sounds of freshwater, forest and mountain habitats.
Our menu – celebrating seasonal vegetables – was lovingly created by Bruno Loubet, a Michelin starred chef: every ingredient was ethically sourced and carefully prepared by our incredible event partners.
We were entertained with spectacular musical and dance performances from all corners of the globe, highlighting the connection between people and nature. We even had a Coral Reef Lounge, where guests enjoyed the ethereal music of Cosmo Sheldrake. Our grand finale took place on the African savannah, where a meerkat played a violin on a high wire, before the Dhol Foundation sent us off into the night with the beat of the drum – a call to action – still ringing in our ears.
