The Lions Roar

The Gethin Jenkins Testimonial of 2016-2017 was honoured to host an incredible British and Irish Lions preview dinner at the Grosvenor London on the 18th May 2017.

The impressive venue provided guests with the opportunity to rub shoulders with British and Irish Lions legends such as Paul O'Connell, Lawrence Dallaglio, Shane Williams, and of course Gethin Jenkins. The excitement didn’t stop there; for music fans a unique, live, and unplugged performance was provided by Welsh music greats The Sterophonics.

An event of such scale needed to do more than shine, it needed to roar. Providing seamless lighting and audio visuals was safely in the hands of Genero. Of course satisfying the beautifully sculptured room with pitch-perfect sounding suitable for a question and answer session, a charity auction, a video and a live set from a rock band naturally came with challenges. But, not even a tight 4-hour rig time could deter the team from setting an outstanding atmosphere for 380 guests.

Pete Leckie, Managing Director at Genero, said: “The night was explosive! Our team really set the atmosphere, that mixed with an impressive set from the ‘Phonics and rugby legends sharing all in a question and answers session, truly provided guests with an unforgettable experience.”
