Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Graduation at The Eagle

There was a real buzz in Westland Place last Thursday, as our beautiful marketing suite hosted the apprentice graduation ceremony for Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen.

Over 200 young people apply to the programme every year. It offers around 18 successful applicants training, and the opportunity to be a part of one of London’s most authentic dining experiences.

The restaurant’s proximity to us on Westland Place and the programme’s qualities – honesty, elegance, aspiration and community – made The Eagle the perfect venue for the event. The sleek, sophisticated marketing suite was decorated for the night with 1m2 headshots of the successful apprentices, and each apprentice had their moment in the spotlight with a short film documenting their rollercoaster journeys over the past year.

Amidst the bustle, the conversation and the laughter, Jamie awarded the apprentices their dog tags as family, friends, and past and future graduates looked on.

We were thrilled to play our part in supporting such a worthy cause, and we look forward to working with Jamie and Fifteen again in the future. Watch this space for more pictures and video from the night.
