I met Keeley last year in Liverpool at the Novatel Hotel. Keeley also from London, was there with her two daughters and I was there was there with my mate Laura. We were all staying at the hotel overnight to attend 1Xtra Live. Keeley and I ended up going to Charlie Sloth’s 1Xtra Live after party together as Laura wasn’t up for going… We had a great night and became friends ever since.
For a few months Keeley and had talked about what she should do for her birthday, as it is such a milestone birthday. After lots of different ideas and research Keeley decided to have a Dinner and Dance. The dinner was held for close friends & family, with more friends invited to the dance later.
Keeley’s 40th birthday Dinner and Dance, was held at the Holiday Inn Kensington, in London, which my boyfriend and I were invited to the whole event. The Holiday Inn regularly have Caribbean Nights where they serve Caribbean food and play Caribbean music, so it was the perfect venue for her soiree. The Dinner and Dance was held in a private function room which had set dining tables, a Caribbean buffet cooked by the hotel chefs there were also vegan gluten free options specially prepared for those that required it and a DJ privately hired by Keeley.
My boyfriend and I had a great night celebrating the birthday girl and so did Keeley. The staff were great and there was a great mix of family & friends’ with fantastic vibes. It was the perfect way to enter the “Fabulous Forties!”
