This afternoon I attended that classic start to the party season at 7 St James’s St, the PPL Christmas drinks. As ever, good to catch up with Peter Leathem, John Smith, David Cohen and their colleagues from the collecting society, plus to meet many familiar faces from across the industry. The gathering moved onto Davy’s Wine Bar for the early evening, where I was joined by Jonathan Stewart.
Jonathan and I then drove up to Finsbury Park and enjoyed a Turkish meal at Petek in Bounds Green Road. We then walked down through the biting wind to the Night Owl for the monthly Shindig event, which featured DJ Format and cult sci-fi prog rock band four piece, Morlock. Good to say hello to magazine editor Jon ‘Mojo’ Mills and to make plans for a photoshoot during a future event at the venue.
