Welcome to Optimism

Kids’ Christmas party

We invited the very youngest W+Kers to the agency for a special kids’ Christmas party.

The Hanbury Street basement was transformed into a Winter Wonderland, replete with bouncy castle, craft activities and Santa’s grotto – all hosted by the Wiedens elves.

Thanks to the organisers for putting on a suitably Christmassy shindig and to our young guests for bringing some festive fun to the agency.

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.
