DRPG hosts virtual barbecue
Following the success of the 'Lockdown Dine-in', DRPG partnered again with Performing Artistes for another edition of the virtual dinner party. The collaboration saw Performing Artistes provide the content to be broadcast whilst DRPG provided technical and production support via its bespoke online portal.
The digital get-together included a cook-along barbecue, an interactive quiz and entertainment from cpmedians Zoe Lyons and Russel Kane.
MC for the night was Zoe Lyons, who was joined by home economist and food stylist Jack Williams who guided guests through the suggested menu which included three courses. The suggested menu included a range of dishes including grilled halloumi, BBQ skewers and a range of desserts, all paired with beverages from craft beers to wines and cocktails.
Comedian Russell Kane hosted a quiz for the evening, with guests able to answer questions through the DRPG interactive broadcast portal. The evening was rounded off by Britain's Got Talent contestants DNA, who provided supernatural entertainment by reading the mind of a guest.
JJ Jackson from Performing Artistes said: “Alongside my co-director Lauralee Whyte and the whole of the Performing Artistes team, it was great to bring some fun and creativity to EventProfs’ lockdown. By partnering with DRPG, we were not only able to showcase some superb talent who have been incredibly generous with their time, but also show high production values can be brought to online. We like to think we were a few notches up on a Zoom or Teams call with this virtual experience!”
Dale Parmenter, CEO of DRPG added: “Another successful Lockdown Dine In. It is a brilliant way to communicate with clients in an informal, fun setting and we are grateful to Performing Artistes for providing hosts of such talent and so in keeping with the form of the evening. We have had great feedback from all those how have tuned in to the last two events and we are proud to be able to use the technology and expertise within our organisation to bring a bit of laughter and frivolity to people’s evenings.”
