An array of talent turned out to celebrate the British Academy Games Awards at the ceremony hosted by Rufus Hound at Tobacco Dock, London, on Thursday 12 March 2015.

Stars from across the spectrum of popular entertainment and the gaming industry celebrated the very best games of the past 12 months.  GL events Seating & Stadia ensured they were all sitting comfortably for the evening after installing almost 900 seats (tiered seating and flat floor seats) at the Grade 1 listed Tobacco Dock.

Built in the early 19th Century as a secure bonded warehouse for the receipt and storage of tobacco from the New World, Tobacco Dock was designed to offer complete security for precious and highly desirable goods.

Re-launched in October 2012, its new owners, are developing this incredible space (comprising over 16,000m2 over two floors) to create London’s newest and most flexible events’ venue. Tobacco Dock has it’s own outdoor, quayside space and offers ultimate accessibility and parking facilities for over 800 cars.

The whole space can accommodate over 10000 attendees but the variety of over 70 individual spaces, including dramatic basement vaults and atria, provides the perfect setting for conferences, meetings, exhibitions, awards dinners, product launches and parties.
