Power Ball Pre-Party

7 PM - 9 PM

The party before 'THE' party. Witness a one-night-only experience created by Bompas & Parr: an artistic and taste-centric take on the funfair of yesteryear, a fantastical funland combining exploration, spectacle and entertainment.

Bompas & Parr

Bompas & Parr, founded by Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, is globally recognised as the leading expert in immersive multi-sensory experience design. The founders’ backgrounds in architecture and marketing play a key role in their investigations into the intersections of food, art and emotion and how taste is altered through synaesthesia, performance and setting. Described as “real-life Willy Wonkas” Bompas & Parr’s highly researched installations – combinations of food history, contemporary culture and science lab experiments – boast a distinct aesthetic style and interpretive vigour that is unrivalled.

Bompas & Parr has worked with cultural institutions such as The Barbican, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow and partnered with Coca-Cola, Johnnie Walker, Mercedes, Vodafone, Westfield and LVMH. The studio is based in south London but has realised projects on practically every continent. Genre-defining projects include: Alcoholic Architecture, an inhabitable cloud of gin and tonic; the world’s first Multi-Sensory Fireworks display for London New Year’s Eve 2013; and the Taste Experience for the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. Bompas & Parr also founded the British Museum of Food, the world’s first cultural institution exclusively dedicated to food and drink, and has published six books that explore humankind’s relationship with food.
