FT palace party goes like a midsummer night's dream

The Financial Times held its fourth annual Midsummer Party last week, at the Orangery, Kensington Palace.

Hosted by editor Lionel Barber, guests included MP Alistair Darling; founder of Haymarket Publishing Michael Heseltine, and chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, Trevor Phillips.

The Orangery was lit in pink with royal footmen and stilt-walking flamingos, and played host to more than 400 guests, who were treated to oysters, freshly carved smoked-salmon blinis and pink champagne served by waiters in bowler hats.

At the end of the evening, a bevy of beauties dressed in FT paper dresses handed out luxury goody bags to the party-goers.
