Choosing a venue that provides the perfect stage for your event is the cornerstone of building that truly memorable experience. London’s unique venues are the finest in the World but for an inspirational location London’s only Planetarium takes some beating!
Fizz have organised many newsworthy events at this incredible venue. Perched on the top of a hill, guests are first taken by surprise with a spectacular view that captures historic London, the winding river Thames and the towering Canary Wharf in a single sweep. Just a step away, cutting through the night sky from the Royal Observatory, the laser beam that marks Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is an added, poignant bonus! Recent events here have included an ‘Alien’ themed evening, groundbreaking science projects for the Prince’s Trust and a record launch from independent label, 4AD.
Is there anyone out there?
PR client Pretty Green selected Fizz as their catering partner for the audio launch of Alien – River of Pain. Yes, ‘that’ Alien, linked to the films made famous by Sigourney Weaver. At the event, Fizz served sumptuous canapes which included vodka & beetroot cured salmon served on stark lunar landscapes. Celebrities posed for photographs and sipped champagne before the dramatic audio presentation. As darkness fell guests stepped outside and surrounded the dramatic Planetarium dome as powerful strobes of light split the night sky in an orchestrated transmission to extra-terrestrial life. Fizz’s experience at the Planetarium and our ‘one-stop-shop’ service provided invaluable support at London’s magnificent testament to the planets.
Innovators & Prince’s trust
Fizz have had the pleasure of working with many charities over the years including Oxfam, Save the Children and Help for Heroes. One of the most positive and forward-looking charity events in recent times was an event for the Prince’s Trust at the Planetarium.
The science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STeM) objectives, launched by the Prince’s Trust, seek to create opportunities for young people ranging from app design to stargazing and animation to kitchen science to help them progress into education, employment or training opportunities.
Fizz thoroughly enjoyed sharing an evening with key STeM trainers as they delivered an inspirational platform and good working spaces to demonstrate key projects. Prince’s Trust STeM projects at the event included a hover board and an electrical energy ball that literally made your hair stand! STeM programmes have reached over 4,000 young people equipping them with the skills they need for the future.
Solar Inspired Launch – 4AD
no prizes for guessing why independent record label 4AD launched an album called the Planetarium at this Greenwich location. The album, co-composed by musicians Bryce Dessner, James McAlisterNicoco Muhly, and Sufjan Stevens made use of the Planetarium, a string quartet and seven trombones. This unique collaborative ensemble offers an expansive song cycle that explores the Sun, the Moon, the planets and other celestial bodies of our solar system (and beyond) through soundscape, song, science and myth. The Fizz team provided hospitality as this celestial piece was launched to music press and journalists.
Why choose the Planetarium?
The Planetarium celebrates the planets in a range of diverse ways. The unique domed Planetarium is a mesmerising platform in which to showcase corporate films or audio, ensuring your guests remain completely focussed on your message. Its galleries inform and engage guests during reception events and interactive exhibits and curators make for great talking points. The Planetarium foyer, on the lower level, offers a versatile space for dinners, receptions or Christmas parties. With a glass wall of sliding doors leading to a courtyard, this modern setting is ideal for outdoor entertaining in the summer. If watching the venue’s Planetarium show, why not tailor it to highlight key moments in the history that tie in with your company’s key events or dates, this works particularly well for Corporate Anniversary events. Located right next door to the Royal Observatory, events can be combined with the Planetarium to offer a progressive event using two stunning locations. Our Wesleyan Case study shows how effective and memorable this format can be for celebrating key company events.

“Thanks very much, your staff and yourself did a brilliant job! Communication before and on the day was fantastic, even when we had to adjust numbers or make extra requests you were always happy to facilitate. At the event staff were polite, friendly and professional, really adding class to the event. Most importantly, the food was fabulous and received well by all! Would use Fizz again in a heartbeat.”
