Time Out parties with Royal Court Theatre

Posted at 4:05 pm, May 6, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

Royal Court TheatreLast night, Oakley Capital in association with Time Out sponsored one of the best parties of 2011: the Royal Court Gala, held at Shoreditch Town Hall, went off with a bang and helped to raise crucial funds for the theatre. The post-dinner auction – which was introduced with a genius promo film starring the likes of Romola Garai and James Fleet – was followed by a short play by Richard Bean starring RC alumni including Rachel Stirling, Benedict Cumberbatch and Matthew Macfadyen. After dinner, Matt Smith, Jack Peñate and Tom Sturridge (currently in ‘Wastwater’ at Royal Court) hit the decks alongside hot DJ duo George Barker and Hugo Heathcote, while guests Daisy Lowe, Polly Stenham, Max Irons and Simon Amstell hit the dance floor (Belvedere Sucker Punch cocktails helped proceedings). Check back here for exclusive party pics on Monday.
