In March Timebased Events produced the Ice & Diamonds Send-Off Ball for Walking with the Wounded. Battersea Power Station’s Boiler House was transformed into a winter wonderland for the evening and Zara Phillips, David Bailey, Rob Brydon and Yasmin Le Bon graced the white carpet.
Timebased worked with the Walking with the Wounded charity, and sponsors Artemis Investment Management, Edmiston and GQ to ensure the occasion was as notable as the people and the cause it was supporting. Battersea Power Station’s Boiler House became a chic ice cave, adorned with Herbert Ponting’s photographic documentation of previous polar adventures. Two majestic ice bars were installed and the ball was illuminated by sparkling glass chandeliers and electric blue projections. Capital Models made the 7m x 5m Entrance Arch and a 30m long Tunnel made from wire cut polystyrene. There was enough polystyrene to fill a 60′ arctic lorry, delivered to the workshop for cutting, re-delivered to site for assembly which took 3 people a day and a half. After the event the following day, disassembled and then sent for recycling.
The evening raised over £220,000 for the brave servicemen and women who fight for our country
