Cultural Connections Event at Kedleston Hall

Kings Speech Outdoor Screening

Katapult & QUAD present…Cultural Connections, a special monthly event for our clients, suppliers and partners.

This Saturday we hosted a selection of guests for the spectacular outdoor screening of ‘The Kings Speech’  at Kedleston Hall.  The hospitality began with Steve from QUAD’s catering team providing a fabulous spread for our guests . I was in control of drinks, so mixed up some delightful Pimms…which seemed to go down very nicely…mmm…. lots of fresh fruit and the lush smell of mint leaves.

We already know that The King’s Speech  is an amazing film but what a stunning location to watch it in. Being on the lawn of Kedleston Hall really added something grand – the sense of history & British heritage felt ever so more rich. The screen was erected in front of  a ‘ha ha’ which allows uninterrupted views of the parkland and grazing areas beyond. As the night sky cleared of the clouds you could  just gaze up to a beautiful starlite sky, the words of King George VI filled the valley and in the quite moments you could hear in the distance the sheep that grazed barrrr…barrrr.

I had prepared a treat bags for our guests, each with a handwritten ‘quote’ from the film, there certainly wasn’t much problem finding great quotes.

A really enjoyable evening & certainly looking forward to future outdoor screenings.
Next time I might take a woolly hat though.
