'Rum Runner Yard' is Gas Street Basin's first ever outdoor event space, situated within Regency Wharf. As part of our relationship with Picton, in 2017 TEK ran '6 Weekends of Summer Screenings' with films curtosey of Flatpack Film Festival and a giant screen by Elonex to test Rum Runner Yard's potential as an events space running the marketing for each and every event, involving social media, a variety of media outlets and creating a brand identity for the RRY space. Films were carefully chosen to appeal to a wide audience including films that aren't classics you'd typically find at open air cinemas but more cult classics such as The Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction and Shawshank Redemption. Each cinema screening was designed with a 'food + film' concept, pairing the film with relevant street food, including some of the UK finest street food vendors Baked in Brick and Original Patty Men.
Picton Property are the owners of Regency Wharf, home to restaurants, bars and Gas Street Basin's first ever outdoor event space 'Rum Runner Yard'. TEK studio were bought on board through our relationship with Gensler as part of the transformation package for Regency Wharf. During our first year, we worked alongside the landlords and management in creating an events programme in order to test the sites potential. The events were a success however they highlighted many amendments that will need to be carried out on the site so our relationship with Picton developed into TEK becoming creative direction consultants for the site transformation. We are currently developing the signage, landscaping and creative consumer engagement for the site in a means to make it a family orientated space with heritage and culture. Over the next year we are working closely with Picton and CS2 Chartered Surveyors and will be creating an events programme for 2019, which we will keep updated over the next year. Whilst consulting on Regency Wharf's creative direction and we have added artwork, painting, landscaping and lighting to the space as well as the branding of the outdoor event space Rum Runner Yard.
