Well, this year we could have got ourselves a gin fizz and a large cigar each and headed out onto the terrace, so confident were we that said dancefloor would be rammed in a matter of seconds.
Sure enough, as soon as the amazing Jazzy B introduced the rest of Soul II Soul to the stage – including the simply mesmeric Karen Wheeler – the Mixology throng were under his spell.
Earlier, our audience took full advantage of the fine weather, enjoying drinks and views across the Thames, before tucking into a fine dinner. This, of course, was merely the prelude to the prestigious Mixology awards, which this year saw wins (on the product side) for Autex Acoustics, Shaw Contract, Dataflex, Bisley and Eikund. Project winners included Basha Franklin, Gensler, Squire & Partners, Royal Opera House and Stanton Williams, Goddard Littlefair and Concorde BGW.
