Around 9.30pm last night, a stream of people in their PJ humming songs from a musical, dispersed into the streets around London’s Oxford Circus. Some had slippers on their feet, others were in animal-printed onesies and many wore nightcaps. If you’re wondering what on earth was happening, this jolly bunch had joined our Pyjama Party held at the beautiful Courthouse Hotel.
The lobby had begun filling up with people around half 6 and it was wonderfully bizarre to see people at the bar doing double (or even triple) takes at the fact they were sharing their post-work drinks with people in dressing gowns and slippers. One couple had really gotten into the swing of things; she had her hair in curlers and her partner sported a marvellous 50s-style quiff.
In true sleepover-style we had wine, popcorn and heaps of chocolate for our guests who all curled up in the cinema seats to watch the classic movie ‘Grease’, as voted for by our Facebook friends. Though we had a few technical glitches, everyone was in great spirits, singing along to every single word!
We raised nearly £700 and we want to thank ever single one of you who joined us to make the night such a success. A womp bop a looma a womp bam boom!
