Guests admired the artworks, while networking and socialising in the Le Chiffre bar and Secret Garden Bar.

Entertainment was provided by international Burlesque artist Chrys Columbine (chryscolumbine.com) who performed two acts; a Diamonds Are Forever Fan Dance, on the Diamonds Are Forever theme music, and later in the evening her infamous Naked Nocturne act, where she revealed more and more of herself while expertly playing the piano (Chrys Columbine is the only concert-trained-pianist & burlesque star in the world).
