Shanghai Swing NYE

Happy New Year! To ring in the new year for 2009, Crown held an invitation-only party for around 1000 of their closest friends. Tottie Goldsmith, David Campbell and his band performed, as did dancers from Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance at the Anne Peacock hosted event. The theme was Shanghai Swing – a nod back to cabaret, the 1930’s and the perceived exotica of the Far East at the time. Guests would expect a lot of sequins, fringing and glitz. The magnificent Palladium ballroom was dressed up, influenced by the Art Deco movement and guests were treated to a six course meal on tables laden with crystal, black and red decoration to finish of the year in a sumptuous, sparkling fashion. Our gallery is a sneak peek at the nights glittering entertainment.
