The Poetry Cafe in based in Covent Garden, serving a diverse public and range of events. They support all sorts of poetry and literature, community groups, interdisciplinary arts, music, craft, and more. They are a cafe and events space used by all ages and demographics, day and night, and cater to independent and corporate groups alike.
After finishing a modern/cosy refurbishment of the venue, they found that they were without any sound and had never had proper AV equipment. The projector and speakers they had been using were 'clumsy, difficult, unreliable, and very unattractive' for their corporate users.
We chose Flipside because we really felt like our needs were being heard and a bespoke package was being created for us. We felt like Flipside was sensitive to our budgetary AND aesthetic needs, which is a hard balance to manage. We felt like James was honest and super knowledgeable, and felt secure allowing him and Flipside to work on our newly refurbished space.
