NMT Christmas Lunch



Winter 2016 saw the launch of the inaugural NMT Christmas Lunch hosted by NMT Magazine and sponsored by Christie & Co at the sophisticated Browns, Covent Garden on the 8th December.

Guests were greeted at the venue’s prestigious Judge’s Courtroom with a chilled glass of champagne and warm canapés, courtesy of our Drinks Reception sponsors Laser Learning Ltd. In the past this room served as the main courtroom of Westminster County Court, now still containing the original Judge’s bench and redecorated with theChristmas spirit, it served as an elegant setting for our afternoon. After the welcome by Dr Richard Hawkins, Editor-in-Chief of NMT Magazine and a short speech from Andy Morris of Asquith Day Nurseries & Pre-schools, the
festivities began with cracker pulling and everyone donning their paper hats as the starters were served. Guests were treated to generous helpings of a traditional Christmas day dinner with all the trimmings, followed by Christmas pudding and a sumptuous cheese board to round off the lunch.

Continuing with the celebrations, a Christmas quiz kindly sponsored by Connect Childcare and brilliantly hosted by NMT’s own Fiona Robb began – and with a magnum of champagne and a box of luxury chocolates up for grabs for the winning team, the competition was fierce! After 5 rounds of quizzing, the winners were determined to be ‘Ruth’s Rabble’, finishing off what was an immensely enjoyable afternoon.

We then moved on to Scarlet’s Bar Covent Garden, commonly known as Covent Garden’s Sassy Sister, it proved a popular and chic choice for our after lunch drinks that continued into the evening,
providing time to celebrate Christmas and the Nursery Sector itself in style with our guests. Here at NMT we couldn’t think of a better way to finish 2016 than celebrating with you all, thank you to our sponsors for their support and of course to our guests for making the day a success. We hope to see you all again later this year!
