Summer arrives in style with TLC's Erasmus event
Yes, it may sound an unlikely headline given the amount of rain we’ve seen in the last few weeks (you can always rely on the British summer!) but the clouds retreated and the sun was on its best behavior this week as the Erasmus took to the Thames for our summer networking event.
Some 120 guests were treated to a spectacular evening cruise through London up towards Westminster – including going under a raised Tower Bridge at sunset, which is always a special sight.
Our in-house DJ provided a background of chilled Ibiza style tunes, Stagg and Barber – our favourite cocktail specialists – were on hand making passionfruit mojitos and foodbydish excelled themselves with a selection of canapes and bowl food. Highlights included a salmon, cucumber and dill salad served under a smoke filled cloche and little buckets of calamari and chips.
Sweet treats came in the shape a Floss Whizzer, shooting clouds of spun sugar into the air at up to 60mph – talk about fast food! - then beautifully twizzled by guests who were delighted to have the chance stir up some strawberries and cream candy. The Nitro Pod, which uses an advanced liquid nitrogen system to create instant ice cream, was a popular stop-off before disembarking – with flavours ranging from Coco Pops to salted caramel – right in front of your eyes. Magic!
The evening was featured on CIT Magazine, and you can take a look at a selection of some of the best photos from the evening below. Be sure to check out #TLCLondon on social media for more:
