Student to ‘Wok n Roll’ at MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds

25 June 2018 | Hospitality & Catering

Having ‘wok’d out’ at last year’s MTV Crashes, students from City College Plymouth will once again be catering for VIP guests at the city’s premier music event – MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds.

City College is the music extravaganza’s corporate hospitality partner and students and staff will be providing street-style food from the wok, barbeque and grill in the exclusive VIP area on The Hoe this July.

Chaz Talbot, the College’s Academy Manager for Hospitality, Catering and Care, explains: “Catering a showcase event like MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds is a fantastic opportunity for our students. Most have experience of working in hotels and restaurants, but this gives them an insight into the logistics of catering a large scale outdoor event. We’ll be serving up a delicious selection of street food, desserts and, new for this year, a special menu just for kids.”

Deputy Council Leader, Pete Smith, said: “Students from City College Plymouth have done a fantastic job providing the corporate hospitality in previous years. We’re delighted to be working with them again to provide an exclusive experience for our VIP event goers and give the students invaluable experience of catering at one of the city’s biggest events.”

Chloe Lillicrap, 19, was one of the student team catering last year’s music event. She said: “It was great to be involved with something so different and a fantastic end to a fantastic year at City College Plymouth.”

MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds takes place on 26 and 27 July with acts including Bastille, Ella Eyre, Professor Green and Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra.
