Hurlingham Club Summer Party and Spectacular Summer Solstice Party photographed by Elaine Mayson Photography

Hurlingham Club Summer party for a City Law Firm was a resounding success. Though this year there were a few showers for the most part all the guests could chat and eat outside. A spectacular spread of lobsters cooking on the grills gave colour and an exclusive feel to the already up market beautiful venue.  Anyone for croquet?

A whole group of actors, trapeze artists and fire throwers entertained the guests in a Midsummer Nights Theme.  The hostess is very artistic and this party was one of her more ambitious themed events.  Seen above is Oberon and Puck on the right with Titania the Queen of the Fairies on the left.

Trapeze artists entertained in the grounds.  A band played and the wine and food flowed from quirky country style stands.

Entertainment started at Dusk.

Continuing when the sky was nearly black the entertainers dance with flames.  Behind them is the entrance to a huge Bedouin style tent that was to be the final show of the evening with dancing early into the morning with a 10 piece disco band.  Electric open fires burned amongst the seating to keep the guests warm and security guards were openly visible to ensure the guests safety.

The Hoola Hoop of fire.  An impressive show  on this Midsummer Evening.
