Previous events organised by Mr Carter have been some of the most highly acclaimed events in London, including extravagant and theatrical life drawing evenings, parties like ‘Tart’ and ‘Coquette’ (spoiling afternoons of naughty self- indulgence, seductive style and decadent pampering for girls), the famous ‘Jacques Townhouse’ (London’s first pop-up hotel), and the inaugural meeting of the ‘Champagne Charlie Society’. There has also been a magical ‘Bedtime Story Nights’ and the newest event, ‘Supernatural’.
And May’s event sees the very witty Viv Groskop performing. Viv is a journalist, writer, occasional agony aunt and comedian. She is the star of BBC1’s This Week and BBC Radio 4’s It’s Just a Joke, Comrade. VIVALICIOUS is a brand new show that will be officially launched at the Edinburgh Festival, but 40 Winks have managed to lure her hre for a special preview date. In an age of therapy and reinvention, Viv humorously explores how we all want to become the very best versions of ourselves, and frequently fail despite our most determined efforts. I have been told to expect enlightenment and lots and lots of laughter.
