Our team catered for the annual British Academy Children’s Awards at the Roundhouse on Sunday 20th November, in partnership with Ultimate Experience.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts honours the very best in children’s media. The ceremony was hosted by British actor, writer and comedian Doc Brown
Horrible Histories led the way in the nominations, with three nominations for the second year in a row. It was particularly recognised for its special episode on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. The gruesomely entertaining history show is nominated in the Comedy, Writing and Performer categories, with the latter for Tom Stourton’s portrayal of the Bard himself.
Feature Film nominations included Zootropolis, The Good Dinosaur, The Jungle Book and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The hugely popular intergalactic franchise also appeared in other categories, with Star Wars Arcade nominated in Interactive: Adapted and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens nominated for Game.
Following the presentation of awards, guests were seated for a three-course meal, beginning with a starter of Chestnut & Pumpkin Soufflé with truffled honey aioli, soused pumpkin, roasted chestnuts, raisins, capers and mint. The main course was a Slow-Braised Beef Featherblade, served with buttermilk creamed potato, glazed navets and a cabbage and bacon pie, or a vegetarian main course of Celeriac Dhal Pudding with spiced baby aubergine, tender stem broccoli served with a creamed garam masala sauce. For dessert, guests enjoyed a Flourless Chocolate Cake with Baileys mousseline, espresso caviar and raspberries. After dinner, guests celebrated their awards, moving upstairs for an after party on the Roundhouse’s balcony.
For some added excitement all the guests, presenters and staff took part in an exceptional attempts at the mannequin challenge.
