THE LENSBURY SUMMER BALL
The 37th annual Summer Ball at The Lensbury was another huge success. It was lovely to enjoy the summer heat while it lasted on the banks of the Thames and we were happy to see a great turnout of members, guests, and VIPs. Arrival drinks were enjoyed in the sunshine on our terrace and decking while pianist Paul Grainger played the piano.
The festivities continued into the night. Dinner, as in past years, was a sumptuous buffet of delights; from an array of salads, hors d’oeuvre and seafood to main courses of roast meats, curries and fish – something for everyone. During the meal, everyone was entertained by a surprise “flash mob” singing and dancing in the restaurant. After the main courses, a fantastic buffet of desserts was laid out with macarons, chocolate cakes, trifles, jellies and puddings of all kinds. It really was very spectacular.
At 9:30pm, as the sun had set, the guests were invited into the gardens to watch a magical fireworks display provided by Pains Fireworks. Musical accompaniment was provided by Orchestra Vitae with accompanying singers providing modern takes on classic hits. The fireworks display is so superb we have our own fireworks night in November, which we are looking forward to as autumn draws nearer.
Once the fireworks were finished, it was back inside for more dancing to The Shane Nolan Band and DJ Mac Sax until 1.00am. The bars stayed open and the drinks flowed until late. A good time was had by all.
As the summer draws to a finish we start preparing for our well known Christmas parties. Our experienced group of event organisers will make sure that your night is one to remember. We offer a range of beautifully furnished rooms as well as a variety of menus to choose from to ensure that your night is just how you want it.
