Premier Pr wanted an authentic 1920’s setting and theme so journalists could get a feel for the show.
Tommy Guns Salon in Regent Street was the venue chosen to host the event. Tommy Guns in Regent Street is a traditional a Barber shop restored with original features from 1920s.
Journalists were invited to try have a traditional wet shave and ladies got a 1920s makeup and hairstyle makeover!
Whilst sipping 1920's Whisky cocktails journalists had the opportunity to try out some gaming on Lost Vegas's authentic Blackjack Table, John our professional croupier explained the game of 21 and how to play it and the guests had some fun playing cards.
The feedback we got from Annie at Premier PR was:
"Thanks so much for everything at the event – the gambling went down a storm! The journalists all said that the croupier was fantastic and that they would like to book him for a party of their own, so hopefully you will have some calls. "
