This year the party took place in the Paul Hamlyn Hall, at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
As it turned out, as partners aren't invited, and as the people I would normally link up with weren't going this year, I did spend the first twenty minutes walking round the outside of the gathered throng, on my own. Fortunately, with there being free champagne and canapes on offer, I was soon in a happy enough state to talk to anyone!! I did however meet Alan Samson, my publisher, and have a great chat with him before immediately finding Jess Gulliver, my publicist, who as always was instantly friendly and entertaining.
All in all, a very good evening. And here's a picture. (There's more in the Gallery by the way)
