The University of Toronto, established in 1827, is renowned for being Canada’s highest ranked university. The University of Toronto reached out to LDA for our assistance with their event for 160 people in London’s very own Private Members Club – The Lansdowne Club.


The Lansdowne Club was the perfect venue, offering our client an event within one of the most exclusive and traditional private clubs in London, based in the heart of Mayfair. For the event space we chose the ballroom - a very elegant 18th century room with vaulted ceilings, minstrel galleries and 24-carat gold detailing. The room accommodates to a capacity of 150 people in theatre style or dinner and 200 people for a drinks reception. We believed the layout and elegance of the room was a wonderful fit for a drinks and canapé evening.

Our priority was to make our client feel at ease, leaving the event in our professional hands, from organising the staffing, photography and promotional merchandise to ensuring that the event ran smoothly on the night. We created lanyards with the University of Toronto print for our client, as well as foam and banner stands.

The Private Club sources the freshest seasonal produce from local quality suppliers, providing the greatest variety of foods. From beef carpaccio with parmesan and Vietnamese prawn and vegetable rolls to crisp tomato to basil and mozzarella gnocchi, the club offered a wonderful selection of canapés. The client was most impressed by the assortment of rich, tasty and new flavour combinations.

Our professional staff ensured that the event ran smoothly. With more guests arriving on the night than anticipated, the staff was prepared well in advance, creating customised lanyards for walk-ins. The operations team enabled the night to turn out to be a great success.


The client was very pleased with the whole event, from the stunning venue and excellent AV to the delicious canapés and hostess desk. The client was especially grateful for the way the photographs came out for the event and the online website we provided, where the guests could log on afterwards to access the photos.
