Welcome to Optimism

W+K Pride

Our Hanbury Street roof terrace was treated to a rainbow-inspired makeover this week as we celebrated LGBT Pride ahead of London’s weekend festivities.

Cabaret performer Topsie Redfern put on her very best day drag and treated us to a performance which paid tribute to gay icons including Freddie Mercury, Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer. She also enlisted the talents of our very own Lara Wahab, who spectacularly hogged the microphone in a rousing rendition of I Dreamed a Dream from Les Mis. Guests were kept topped up with plenty of booze, candyfloss and Brick Lane’s rainbow Bagels.

Massive thanks go to the W+K Culture Club for organising.

Wishing everyone a spectacular LGBT Pride from London.

Wings Day lands at W+K London

Our annual Wings Day contest, which sees Wiedeners battle for the chance to take home a trophy for the tastiest chicken wings, made a welcome return to the agency last week.

As the sun blazed on our Hanbury Street roof terrace, willing entrants were judged by an esteemed panel of carnivores on depth of flavour, presentation, tenderness and overall lip-smacking satisfaction.

Account Manager Laura Simmons triumphed with a sticky BBQ concoction which won her a place on the winners’ plaque – congrats!
