Event promoter bizarrely gives up on the coming New Year and begins promoting an event to welcome in 2022 instead
Whilst most of us are wishing 2020 would sink as fast as the Titanic, locked up Londoners surely would prefer to get through the coming New Year 2021 rather than already start worrying about New Year 2022.
For a firm named The Mansion London, however, this is not the case and rather prematurely, they are promoting a bash to welcome 2022 which they curiously claim the Evening Standard has already described as “one of the spookiest and biggest events around.”
Whilst associating New Year’s Eve with the spookiness of Halloween might itself seem a bit beyond wacky, the self-declared “best New Year’s Eve party in London” – for which tickets are priced from £24 for a “super early bird” to £150 per person for a “VIP table” seat – is being held not at some swanky West End joint, but instead in a “private venue” in the less salubrious Zone 2.
The Mansion London declare of their 2021 out, 2022 in bash: “[The] address will be sent to official ticket holders 48 hours before the night” and insist on a white dress code as they claim to “love expressive party animals.”
Going further, they then add: “An impressive clairvoyant will [also be on hand to] give free consultations all night so you [will] know exactly what to expect in 2022.” Given the financial crisis we face right before us now, said individual might by then have already missed the bus.
Ah, they might seem a bit over-ambitious in expecting people to buy tickets this early, but they’re getting the publicity and that’s perhaps why they’re advertising it. Clever buggers
I Wonder, will they be putting all that pre purchase ticket money in some sort of trust account for the next year? Or will the organisers be investing it all in some scheme?
