How it works (FAQs)

It’s at the sweet spot between a well-planned yet informal evening. The art provides a talking point, yet relaxed and never forced. Followed by casual but great food; smart enough surrounds but still convivial.

Absolutely brilliant and very thorough – one of the very few firms that deliver more than what they claim. Real good stuff.
