Purbeck Film Festival Sponsored by Koh
On Tuesday 17th October, Koh sponsored a delicious two-course Thai dinner for the Purbeck Film Festival Gala Dinner at The Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth.
Guests were welcomed to our sponsored sparkling drinks reception at the Hilton to the sweet tones of the very beautiful Katie Francesca, before moving through to the Phoxtrott Ballroom, carefully decorated by our Koh Team and the wonderful team at the Purbeck Film Festival.
Koh performed a takeover of The Hilton Bournemouth kitchens, preparing a delicious and authentic menu to welcome the guests with before the film. To start we served our famous Thai Grilled Pork and Vegetable Spring Rolls, followed by a main of Chicken Green Curry or Vegetable Yellow Curry. Delicious!
Our lovely girls from Koh Bournemouth, not to mention a few from Koh HQ, worked the floor to make sure everyone was served and served happy.
As the lights dimmed for the film, Purbeck Ice Cream supplied us with some tasty clotted cream ice cream to serve for dessert. The perfect “movie night” snack for the screening of Silver Linings: Playbook (2012) starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.
The event was a huge success and one of many, as it followed a full agenda of events. Koh were proud to also sponsor the food and wine for the Wareham Town Hall event, followed by a screening at the Rex.
Whilst Koh also ran these events in partnership with PFF last year, 2017 saw the addition of Koh Lounge (opened March 2017), which also hosted a screening of The Beach (2000).
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as he explored Thailand, Koh Lounge was the perfect setting. We transformed our tranquil cocktail bar into a cinema, with canapés and prosecco on arrival and tapas treats served throughout the film.
Whilst the event was a huge success, there is more to Purbeck Film Festival than just film. Their passion for the community shined through their partnership with charity Diverse Abilities. The festival and charity were delighted to work together in order to raise awareness of disability and how film can improve lives for the better.
