DRPG hosts star-studded Lockdown Dine In with top comedians

DRPG played host to a star-studded virtual barbecue extravaganza in the latest of its Lockdown Dine In events.

Partnering once again with Performing Artistes, the agency created a virtual dinner party complete with BBQ cook-along, interactive quiz and entertainment from top comedians including Zoe Lyons and Russell Kane.

Guests tuned in to the feel-good themed broadcast, which encouraged them to cook along with the presenters on their BBQs or grills at home. The collaboration saw Performing Artistes provide the talent and the content to be broadcast with DRPG’s technical and production expertise via a bespoke online portal.

Zoe Lyons, MC for the night, was joined by home economist and food stylist Jack Williams who guided guests through the three course suggested menu including grilled halloumi, BBQ skewers and a range of desserts, all accompanied by paired beverages including craft beers, wines and cocktails.

Comedian Russell Kane took on the role of quizmaster, taking guests through rounds of questions between each course which they could answer through the DRPG interactive broadcast portal, before Britain’s Got Talent’s DNA rounded off the evening with their mind-reading act.

JJ Jackson from Performing Artistes said: “Alongside my co-director Lauralee Whyte and the whole of the Performing Artistes team, it was great to bring some fun and creativity to eventprofs’ lockdown. By partnering with DRPG, we were not only able to showcase some superb talent who have been incredibly generous with their time, but also show high production values can be brought to online. We like to think we were a few notches up on a Zoom or Teams call with this virtual experience!”

Dale Parmenter, CEO of DRPG said, “Another successful Lockdown Dine In. It is a brilliant way to communicate with clients in an informal, fun setting and we are grateful to Performing Artistes for providing hosts of such talent and so in keeping with the form of the evening. We have had great feedback from all those how have tuned in to the last two events and we are proud to be able to use the technology and expertise within our organisation to bring a bit of laughter and frivolity to people’s evenings.”
