It was an unforgettable and very successful evening, the event started with the Summer BBQ and party entertainers. The magician showed amazing magic tricks to the guests at the table while waiting for the event to start. There were also hula hoop performers in the garden and buttonhole making at the Manor House. The award ceremony in the main marquee was stunningly decorated with starry sky effects.
