RECAP: BOXPARK 2021 Awards Night
— 21 Jan 2022, 12:25 by Izzy Grant
On Monday evening (17 January) we hosted our first ever BOXPARK Awards night at BOXPARK Wembley with all the traders and teams from our three venues invited! It was a night to reflect back on everything we have achieved in 2021 and reward our teams for their hard work over a difficult year.
Legendary friends of BOXPARK Nadia Jae and Aurie Styla hosted the evening and warmed up the crowd to start, followed by our CEO and Founder Roger Wade delivering a speech updating everyone on what BOXPARK has collectively achieved in 2021 and news of what is coming next in 2022.
A three course dinner was provided by our tasty Wembley traders. Spice Shack, Clean Kitchen, Hola Guacamole and Smashing Plates delivered the starters with Zia Lucia, Spoon and Rice, Smoky Boys, Oliver’s Fish and Chips and Thai Express following with mains. Lastly, Boki, Oatopia, Long Boys and Udderlicious rounded off the food for the evening with delicious desserts. Thank you to all of those who worked with us to provide the food!
The awards were voted for by BOXPARK teams and traders and included Best Food Trader at Shoreditch, Croydon and Wembley, Best Retailer, Best Leisure Trader, Best Site Team Employee, Best Bar Team Member, Employee of the Year and many more.
BOXPARK’S mission is to bring people together because we genuinely care about our community and want to create a thriving environment where all our teams and traders work together and move in the same direction, so we will be delivering an annual awards night for the BOXPARK community following on from this as it was a huge success. We already can't wait for the next one!
