The scenery for Audi’s staff party could not have been more picturesque: set in the grounds of the Woburn sculpture gallery, it was evident that Audi had spared no expense to provide their staff with a proper thank you.

The brief was much like many others: free cocktail bar all night, serving 170 people with a “give them whatever they want” approach. The bar was set up and ready to go and our mixologists were eager for the guest’s arrival. Once they started turning up it was a steady flow of service all night, followed by a slightly less steady set of stumbles on the way out.
