When it comes to getting older, it’s generally not the ticking clock of time itself you remember but the way you celebrate another year passing by. A great party (whether real or fictional) will go down in history, remembered by all who attended. See Trimalchio’s Dinner Party from Petronius’ Satyricon. Or Jay Gatsby’s infamous Saturday Night Parties. Or Paris Hilton’s 21st birthday. All landmark celebrations, and all residents in the great pantheon of having a good time.
When it came to throwing our own party, our goals weren’t quite as lofty. We wanted to celebrate our 10th birthday with the people who made Kingsbridge the company it is today. We wanted good food, good music, and fun for all. And a falconry display.
Rather than regale our readers with stories from the day, we thought we’d simply stick to showcasing a few of our favourite images. Many thanks to our esteemed colleague Liam for providing the vast majority of the photos, and apologies to anyone who might not be too happy with any less-than-flattering images now living on in perpetuity on the Internet. A huge thank you also to our hosts Steve and Janet, and to Kelly for organising everything. See below for bucking broncos, karaoke, an array of face paint and much more.
