Lions and Roses

Drive produced the annual Lions and Roses Gala Dinner ahead of 2014 Fifa World Cup held at The Grove and hosted by the England Football team to benefit the charities that the England Footballers Foundation supports.

Drive reinvented the traditional gala dinner by fusing the worlds of sport, travel and entertainment, flying the team out to Brazil in nothing but the best first class style.

Passengers watched through the aircraft windows as they ‘flew’ high over Sugarloaf Mountain finally landing in Rio de Janeiro. An explosion of vibrant colours, feathers and Brazilian dancers welcomed the guests to Brazil in time for show-stopping performances from two internationally acclaimed music acts; Brit Award winners the Kaiser Chiefs and platinum selling duo Rizzle Kicks. 

England captain Steven Gerrard said: “All the players are delighted with how much we were able to help raise at Lions and Roses last night. The England Footballers Foundation has been going for over seven years now and all the players thoroughly enjoy giving up our time to help our charity partners. The proceeds from Lions and Roses will help us to continue to touch the lives of those less fortunate for years to come.”
