/three summer events for the Illuminating BAFTA campaign/
What happened: We started in June with our first Summer Party at our home at 195 Piccadilly, with Champagne Taittinger flowing and Veevers Carter creating a tropical flower wall, featuring BAFTA masks and lush green foliage. Campaign ambassador Tom Hiddleston led the evening's proceedings with music from DJs and a Cuban trio, provided by GS Live. Later in the month, our Academy Circle with Hugh Bonneville saw us returning to Fortnum & Mason, this time in their cosy Three and Six Bar. Guests loved hearing from the Downton Abbey and Paddington star and much laughter could be heard throughout the evening. The season closed with a further Academy Circle event, this time with Dominic West, star of The Wire and The Affair. Held in the fantastic Garden Courtyard at Coutts, guests heard about West's upcoming role in the latest adaptation of Les Miserables before enjoying further drinks and a private dinner.
What they ate and drank: From Fortnum & Mason's delicious canapes, food stations designed by BAFTA 195 Piccadilly's Anton Manganaro, to the first-class hospitality at Coutts, our guests have enjoyed incredible food and drink throughout the summer!
