/ten days of events on London's Southbank/


Client: Ark

Brief: Back in 2014, we worked with Ark to deliver Ark by Night, an immersive event designed to challenge the traditional fundraising gala format. Having run the event again in 2015, we were at risk of guest fatigue and therefore came up with the idea of a pop up event, allowing us to reach numerous audiences, including the general public, to talk about Ark's work. 

What we did: Ark Pop Up took over four floors of Bargehouse at Oxo Tower Wharf, without drinking water, a kitchen or any heating for two weeks in December. From a student art gallery to a bespoke Escape Room experience, we produced interesting content and created a space that could host activities and events including drinks receptions, information evenings, Christmas Parties and a fundraising dinner. Over 1,000 visitors and guests came through our doors to experience #ArkPopUp.
