What a Brilliant 2022!

As the year draws to a close and I’ve managed to get all my events and associated tasks done for the year, I finally have time to reflect on what has been a great year for Lucy Claire Events.

This time last year, I was reflecting on a really tough 2021 and, in all honestly, I didn’t know how 2022 was going to go. It was an uncertain and nerve-wracking time, but I am so thrilled that 2022 has exceeded my expectations and next year looks to be even better.

What has been so wonderful for me this year is being able to curate and witness incredibly magical, in-person moments. Whether that’s a boss being able to treat their team and thank them for all their hard work, a family getting together to celebrate missed celebrations or friends and colleagues just loving being together again.

Each event is incredibly special, and it is not lost on me how lucky I am to organise such a diverse range of events that are so personal and special to so many people.

This year has been hectic, no doubt, but there have been some real stand-out events and moments. Here are a few of my top ones below and a huge thank you to everyone that has worked with me this year – I am extremely grateful.

A Founders Retreat at Wasing Park

Back in May, I worked with an American venture capital client to organise a retreat for 55 founders of start-up companies from all over the world at the beautiful Wasing Park near Newbury. To supplement the wonderful accommodation on site, we set up a glamping area with lovely green field views. Guests were given little touches such as hot water bottles, storm lanterns and eco-friendly bath products, and also experienced an African drumming session, a moonlit walk, wild swimming and a sauna each morning followed by yoga.

Safe to say, everyone had an amazing time – let’s hope we can do something again next year. Watch this space!

Natural History Museum

As far as venues go, it doesn’t get much better than the Natural History Museum. It was an honour to organise two events for two different clients in the same week in the Earth Halls. The first was an Appreciation Evening for my client’s clients with a private viewing of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition as well as music from a lovely string trio. Then, I was back for an evening with Ben Fogle with another client, which was definitely one of my highlights of the year. What an inspiring man!

San Sebastián

A massive treat this year was working with the fab Sammy Daniels from Connect Ventures on a trip for the team and their other halves to the stunning San Sebastián. They ate, drank, surfed, hiked, drank and ate some more (including a 15-course tasting menu!) and had an incredible time. Definitely on my list to visit next year!


In August, I headed to Sweden for the first time and utterly loved it! I was there freelancing for another events company with a group of 19 people and I loved how easy Stockholm is to get around. The food, drink, speed boating around the islands and ice sculpting were amazing!! Everyone had a fabulous time.

Awards Dinner at Four Seasons

In October, we organised our client’s European Women In Finance Awards at Four Seasons London Ten Trinity for 120 guests. The ceremony was held in the stunning Merchants Hall with guests enjoying a drinks reception and delicious dinner. I’m very happy to say we received some fabulous feedback!

Dinner at The Courtauld

This was a magical event, and I loved every minute of it! It started with a drink reception accompanied by music from the Southbank Sinfonia, followed by a delicious dinner courtesy of Bubble Food. The venue was just incredible with its six galleries showcasing some of the greatest and most-loved works from The Courtauld’s collection from the Renaissance to the 18th Century. Very memorable indeed.
