    Royal privilege of the best kind. How Prince Harry created a life-changing concert with Liz Young, Hampton Court Palace

    Royal privilege of the best kind. How Prince Harry created a life-changing concert with Liz Young, Hampton Court Palace

    Hosting an event at Hampton Court Palace means your guest are literally walking in the footsteps of Kings and Queens, enjoying once in a lifetime experiences.

    So no wonder Prince Harry chose it as the venue for his Sentebale Charity Concert; an event that required planning to an inch of its life and even then, tested the team to be flexible and find workarounds.

    "At the last minute Prince Harry’s schedule moved. We suddenly had to change ALL the timings."

    But what's it like working at such an extraordinary space? To find out what’s involved in pulling off prestigious VIP events I speak to Liz Young, Head of Events and Commercial Services at the Historic Royal Palaces. She chats about:

    · The pleasures (and perils) of planning parties in palaces

    · How trusting your team is key to staying calm

    · Why VIPs and social media can enhance your event

    · Working with Princes and paparazzi

    And it’s not all historic palaces and royalty. Liz also talks about the time at a previous job when she welcomed Bon Jovi as the first band to perform on the O2 Arena rooftop. Click to see Liz rocking out

    How do you put on the biggest marathon in the world during a global pandemic?

    This was the challenge Event Director Hugh Brasher faced in 2020 as he worked out how to adapt the London Marathon to ensure the event could continue at a time when it was needed the most.  In this episode we discuss;


    Why nothing is impossible
    The need to be agile
    The future of mass participation sporting events
    Making events more inclusive
