This year one of London’s most iconic magazines, Time Out, celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The magazine was created at a kitchen table in 1968 and grew to be a weekly guide to the very best things to see and do in the capital city, from art, film and music to theatre and restaurants. Today, Time Out it is truly a global brand, with publications in 315 cities in 58 countries around the world.
To celebrate, Time Out threw a massive party in Granary Square, London on 29 September – a one-night birthday bonanza that celebrated the best of London across food, drink, performance, comedy and music.
Amazing Tent Co was delighted to be the temporary event cover supplier of choice for this event, working with event agency Bearded Kitten.
Our S2000 SaddleSpan was the cover for the main stage, whilst our large and imposing S5000 SaddleSpan was utilised entirely open for general cover and grandeur, and as a gateway to the ‘main ring’ area where crowds enjoyed wrestling shows by feminist wrestling group EVE.
Hundreds of people attended and the line-up was eclectic and fun, with Notting Hill Carnival favourites Mangrove Steelband, top DJs and party crew The Glory.
In the street food area delicious food was provided by stalls handpicked by Time Out London’s food editor, plus guests could enjoy cocktails from the curated Time Out Bar, featuring the city’s finest drinking institutions.
We’d love to say we saw and enjoyed it all on the night, but we erected the SaddleSpans during the day and came back the following day to take them down. However, it certainly looked like everyone enjoyed the event from the photos we’ve seen.
What a fantastic celebratory event, we certainly feel privileged to have been a part of the birthday celebration of the year! Happy birthday Time Out.
