Elstree’s inaugural Jubilee “Diner en Rouge, Blanc et Bleu”
What fun it was to welcome over 200 smiling faces to our “Diner en Rouge, Blanc et Bleu” last week. The aim of the dinner was to mark the Jubilee, evoking a spirit of ‘friendship, laughter, and elegance’, with our own take on a ‘Diner en Blanc’ (www.dinerenblanc.com). Everyone was asked to dress in red, white and/or blue, and take part in a pop-up ‘bring your own’ picnic.
The somewhat breezy evening was kept at bay by the warmth of the Elstree community who came together dressed in their patriotic best to get our Platinum Jubilee celebrations off to a fine start!
It was fantastic to see so many parents across the Pre-Prep and Prep Schools as well as lots of staff in such great spirit.
A huge thank you to Julia Burnett for instigating this event, what a great idea and let’s see if this might become an annual feature in the social calendar! Thank you also to the maintenance and groundsmen team for setting up and taking down the tables/chairs, lighting and making Lower look resplendent. Laura and her catering team did a fantastic job in setting the table places and serving welcome drinks to all. Also a thank you to Jon Bond for taking some stunning photos and drone footage of the evening.
Thank you to everyone who attended for making this inaugural event so much fun and we hope you all enjoyed the rest of the Jubilee celebration events over half term.
