Eurostar celebrated its 20th birthday this week (17-18 November) at the National Centre for Circus Arts in Hoxton, with 800 guests attending both days of the event.

Organised by Wonderland and the rail company's internal communications team, guests were treated to visual representations for destinations including Paris, Brussels, Lille, London, Marseille and Amsterdam.
