Peter and Michael Freeman, the founders of Argent, were on odd form at the firm’s 25th anniversary bash at nightclub Canvas, which came to a fairly abrupt end at nine o’clock to be replaced by a roller-disco. Incidentally, Astragal’s friend and colleague Ed Dorrell tells me that this kind of ‘night’ has made a comeback recently and that he even has a friend by the name of Kev who recently broke his wrist skating around such a club. But I digress; back to the Freemans. The middle-aged pair celebrated the evening by confirming the appointment of David Partridge as joint chief executive. Which is good, as he is an architect. Also, they produced, as a bizarre double act, a Morecambeand Wise-style potted history of the company, complete with gags such as referring to the late-’80s property slump as ‘the good old days’. Oh how we laughed. Still it really was a good bash and the canapés were, quite frankly, out of this world
