PLATINUM – CELEBRATING ISRAEL AT 70
We worked with the JLC and UJIA to project manage ‘Platinum – Celebrating Israel at 70’ for over 3000 people at the Royal Albert Hall.
Platinum was a celebration of Israel’s 70 years. The event took place at the Royal Albert Hall and brought together talented artists, dancers and musicians from across the many and varied communities that make up the country. The evening was attended by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
The evening was hosted by Rob Rinder, best known for his ITV British reality court show “Judge Rinder”. Headline act Balkan Beat Box Soundsystem performed their signature mix of world music, jazz, electronica, hip hop with guest singers Ethiopian Israel Gili Yalo, Shai Tsabari and Yemenite all-star female group A-WA, whose debut single was the first Arabic song to top the Israeli charts. They were joined by Vertigo, Israel’s leading contemporary dance company, who made their debut UK performance on the night, classical string quartet Gilad Ephrat Ensemble and other guests.
Piece of Cake worked with the JLC and UJIA teams to project manage the event and ensure all elements were meticulously planned, all suppliers were liaised with and that the event ran smoothly. In addition we worked with production company Raymond Gubbay and with the Creative Director and her team to ensure that the almost 100 artists involved with the show had all that they required and that a great show could be delivered.
Platinum was a once in a generation event for the UK Jewish community and brought people of all ages and backgrounds together. It was the largest communal event celebrating 70 years of Israel. The evening was supported by Israel Bonds and by Genesis Philanthropy Group.
