12 July This is Me visits Downing Street
Karaoke Party a resounding success
The first event of its kind, the Karaoke Party was open to all to come and sing the night away alongside the Lady Mayoress of the City of London, Samantha Bowman (who stole the show with her fancy dress ABBA number!).
Joined by guests from the Livery, across the square mile and beyond, the evening was great fun and rounded off with a fish and chip supper. Requests for songs were never in doubt with the list so long, it would have taken us well into the morning! Highlights included classic songs from Sweet Caroline to Dancing Queen with some fantastic group and solo performances throughout. The highlight of the evening was a live facetime call with the Lord Mayor, who joined us at 5.30am his time in South Korea, for an incredible duet with the Lady Mayoress of ‘You’re the one that I want’.
Guests also took part in a Gin Tombola, winning bottles of a limited edition Lord Mayor’s Gin from the City of London Distillery.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal would like to extend thanks to everyone who attended the event, donated prizes, and supported the event in any way as well as the excellent team at Mansion House.
