20 Bedford Way’s Logan Hall hosted the charity fundraising event ‘Night of Adventure’ by Hope and Homes for Children. The event included first-class explorers telling their wildest adventure stories in just 20 slides, projected onto a huge screen in front of a packed-out auditorium.

The 910-seater theatre was used in conjunction with a number of break out spaces and the Crush Hall bar. Attendees were able to discuss the event as they enjoyed refreshments and explored charity stalls.
