Astragal went along to Make's bash last week, held at the derelict Middlesex Hospital.

But before you start leaping to conclusions, Ken Shuttleworth has not taken to staging illegal raves. No, the chosen setting is the site of one of Make's upcoming residential projects, but it was in a rather dilapidated state, with the main room taking on the appearance of an opium den. In fact, it was so dark it was impossible to see the canapés on offer. One could only blindly shovel food into one's face and pray for something nice. Needless to say, after such an astounding spread last year Astragal was rather disappointed. But worry not, the main event was yet to be served. Yes - out came little bowls filled with bangers and mash, small curried delights, and Lord knows what else.

Huzzah! Well done Make, you saved the best till last, and gave yourself a fighting chance for the Canapés of the Year Award.
