One Young World
Manage and run the Opening Ceremony and Subsequent Summit for One Young World 2019.
Imagine Believe partnered with our friends at Red Fox Productions and Private Drama to put together the One Young World Opening Ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall and the One Young World Summit and Closing Ceremony at Central Hall Westminster.
The Imagine Believe Team provided the technical support to deliver an ambitious show to a full Royal Albert Hall which was built, rehearsed and performed all in the same day. The variety style show and ceremony was presented by Warwick Davies and included a number of one-off performances choreographed specifically for the event, performances from the cast from “Everyone’s Talking about Jamie”, and a laser infused finale from Jay Sean.
The centrepiece of the set was a 6.6m heliosphere with fully animated projection content, that flew over the audience with an acrobat performing below (a first for the Royal Albert Hall, as far as we know!)
Not resting on our laurels after this, we went straight into 3 days of the Summit, with some of the most inspirational keynotes we have ever heard from the likes of John Major, Richard Branson, JK Rowling, Ellie Goulding, Jane Goodall, and Bob Geldof.
“We have just had 4 intense days and I have to admit I have rarely worked on an event so full of heroes. And I don’t just mean the VIPs who used our stages and their power for good, or the incredible delegate speakers whose strength and determination is a life changing inspiration, but for me, I mean YOU wonderful people.
I knew you all had the skills and experience to deliver this job – and that you were very nice people – but I genuinely think you are magic team of stormingly talented, good hearted and inappropriately humoured people and that without you, this would not have been the event it was and I certainly would not have reached the end of it as happily as I did.
So from the bottom of my heart thank you, thank you, thank you.”
