The magnificent looping structure of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, created by sculptor Anish Kapoor and architect Cecil Balmond, is an iconic symbol of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the unforgettable London 2012 games. The ArcelorMittal Orbit is the best place to see the sweeping panoramic views of the capital and has become a hotspot for corporate and private hire events since the games in 2012. Curated by Omnicom Media Group and The Guardian the special Around the Table event was an opportunity to hear and discuss the views and opinions of renowned Guardian contributors.

The ArcelorMittal not only offers guests a stunning panorama of the city, it’s home to the world’s highest and longest tunnel slide. Those who dare plunge down the UK’s tallest artwork sculpture pass through light and dark section with one eye catching London’s dramatic skyscape. The Social Picture’s Tom was on hand to capture The Guardian’s Around the Table event and the fearless few who attempted the slide. The slide was created by Belgian artist Carsten Höller at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

Previous photography events with The Guardian include their annual Guardian Lates party last year that was held below Waterloo station at the acclaimed underground venue The Vaults. The multi-disciplinary urban arts space prides itself on being place to be lost, a place to escape and a place for the best parties in town.
