Party of the week was the annual cocktail-fest hosted by Fishburn Hedges.
Table football, pool, pinball, juggling waiters and a giant Scalextric track ensured a good attendance. Staff from the consultancy gamely listened as tired and emotional guests talked rubbish after one too many Vodka Martinis.
But what of creative director Michael Slater? He was last seen sloping off at around 9 o’clock… just in time for the Liverpool-West Bromwich Albion match, as it happens.
