The speakeasy-themed event included 1930s entertainment from jazz band Jivin Miss Daisy and ‘health and wellness at events’ tips from inspirational speaker Nikki Cooper of Inner Me.

Guests enjoyed unique food concept ‘The Taste Bud Challenge’, which was a back-to-front buffet where no food was what it seemed. Mushroom soup was disguised as coffee, carrot cake as sandwiches and mango panna cotta as boiled eggs.

There was also a mobile hair company who treated female guests to a 1930s hair makeover.
