A Midsummer Night's Gala Pass the Torch fundraising Gala

A Midsummer Night's Gala

Tugboat Group was thrilled to have had the opportunity to contribute our creative expertise to the 2023 Pass the Torch Gala, A Midsummer Night's Gala. This exceptional evening dedicated to fundraising for the campaign to rebuild St Augustine's School was themed (wait for it) on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream! The Tugboat team worked closely with the event organizers to develop a captivating visual theme along with a full suite of compelling graphic elements that truly embodied the spirit of this celebration and important cause.

William Blake's painting "Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing" served as the engaging signature graphic element for the gala because it captured the enchanting and magical essence of the event so well. By incorporating this iconic painting into the event's creative design, Tugboat Group aimed to transport attendees into a world of fantasy and wonder. The vibrant colours, delicate figures, and whimsical dance of fairies depicted by Blake symbolize the transformative power of collective giving and embody the unity and generosity of the St Augustine's School community. The artwork evokes a sense of awe and celebration, inviting guests to immerse themselves in the enchantment of the gala and embrace the spirit of giving that lies at its core.

Developing creative for this event for the fifth year running, the Tugboat team completely understood the significance of this campaign and the profound impact it would have on the St Augustine's School community. With this understanding, we were driven to create a theme that not only reflected the importance of the cause but also captured the hearts and minds of all those in attendance. Through a combination of striking visual elements, dynamic colour schemes, and thoughtful messaging, we aimed to convey the legacy of giving back and the collective spirit of the community.
