Caterer Food by Dish awarded contract for Eventim Apollo
Caterer Food by Dish has won a supplier contract for live entertainment venue Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, West London.
The contract will run until September 2016 and will see the London caterer work with the venue as it hosts events for the first time.
Eventim Apollo, formerly the Hammersmith Apollo, is one of the largest original theatres in the UK and will be able to host a range of events from award dinners to receptions for anything between 720 and 3,600 guests.
Following a multi-million pound investment, the Grade II listed venue underwent a visual transformation in 2013 to recreate its original Art Deco design.
Hannah Flood, sales and marketing director at Food by Dish, said: "After a strong start to the year, we are delighted to be added to the accredited list of caterers at the Eventim Apollo.
"Helping the team launch events for the first time is a really exciting opportunity, with our extensive experience in event catering we're looking forward to developing menus and achieving the same high-quality standards that guests have come to expect from the venue."
Heiko Kacimi-Alaoui, deputy general manager at Eventim Apollo, added: "Following the refurbishment in 2013 we decided to invest in a state-of-the-art flat floor structure making the space suitable for anything from seated gala dinners to exhibitions and much more.
"With Food by Dish on our side we are confident to have found the right catering partner. With so many events already taking place at the Apollo it is imperative to have a knowledgeable and flexible partner. There's no doubt that Dish will be a huge support on our way into corporate events, while supplementing the unique cultural heritage the venue has."
This year has also seen Food by Dish win a new supplier contract at the Science Museum, while they continue to cater for venues in the capital including the Natural History Museum, Banqueting House and Tobacco Dock London.
Eventim Apollo originally opened on 28 March, 1932 as the Gaumont Palace cinema, designed in the Art Deco style by theatre architect Robert Cromie, who also designed the Prince of Wales Theatre in London.
In 1990 it was designated a Grade II listed building by English Heritage and was upgraded to Grade II status in 2005.
