Welcome to Optimism

W+K Christmas at the House of Magic

The agency made a trip south of the river for our Christmas party, which saw us take over London’s House of Magic for the night.

Arriving at the Enchanted Garden, complete with ‘snow’, guests were invited into magician Simon Drake’s Victorian mansion, crammed with haunted portraits, bizarre curios, dozens of chandeliers and a collection of spooky automata handmade by Drake himself.

The W+K London team was treated to a full-on illusion show, which made full use of some of the agency’s most stage-friendly team members. As ever, fancy dress was mandatory, with the room filling with witch doctors, magic mushrooms and, er, Mystic Megs. Thanks to the Culture Club for organising and to the House of Magic for a great night.


Summer Party

The W+K London Culture Club did us proud last Thursday with a swinging summer party at Hackney Wick’s Stour Space.

The building, which houses artist studios and galleries, was a perfect venue for the summer celebrations where the bottomless beer and prosecco were complimented by live music from rising-star Remi. The night ended in a slightly less composed fashion with the great and the good (and the particularly bad) cutting dubious shapes on the dancefloor.

Massive thanks to the organisers for a fantastic night.
