Over 140 under 35s from London’s most elite private members club descended on the clubhouse last Friday night to set off on their around the world adventure.
Greeted at the door by the lurking Inspector, the outrageous Passepartout and the extravagant Mr Fogg, guests tasted cocktails from around the globe and took a ride in our very own hot air balloon – The Evelyn. Before stepping inside, guests had to get their tickets stamped – those who had lost their tickets clung desperately to the side of the basket.
The three-course dinner was inspired by the different places Fogg and Passepartout found themselves in along their adventure – Hong Kong, India and San Francisco. Alongside the delicious culinary delights, the actors performed various famous scenes from Jules Verne’s novel. From the daring rescue of a damsel in distress, to training alongside Passepartout in the circus, and helping Fogg fuel his ship on the last leg of his journey.
Afterwards, our young guests danced the night away in the Princess Alexandra Hall with Bandit, who performed a variety of chart and old school pop hits.
