What a swell party

  • Comment

Richard and Ruthie Rogers celebrated their silver wedding anniversary with one of their renowned Sunday afternoon parties, where the world of architecture mingles with politics, the media and showbiz. Astragal lost count of the celebrities, but noticed Mr and Mrs Kinnock, Mr and Mrs John Gummer; Mr Jeremy Paxman; Mr Alan Yentob (who made a nice speech); Mr Deyan Sudjic with his old school contemporary Alan (Sheriff of Nottingham) Rickman; Mr Simon Callow; Mr Neil Tennant; Ms Ruby Wax; Lord and Lady Palumbo and countless others. Partners present included veterans John Young, Mike Davies and Marco Goldschmied (giving an instant interview to Marcus Binney on why he is standing for riba president). Even sourpuss A A Gill seemed to be enjoying himself.
