Tony's 70th Birthday at Lainston House

Lainston House is a luxury, country hotel located in Sparsholt, Winchester.  The House dates back to the 17th century when Charles II commission Sir Christopher Wren, whose seminal work has to be St Paul's Cathedral, to build him a new palace in Winchester.  

The House was was also the setting for Tony's 70th birthday party!  We were fortunate to have lovely weather whilst Tony enjoyed drinks and canapés with friends and family before retiring to The Houghton Suite for lunch and cake.  We were also treated to the amazing skills of magician, Simon Alexander.... I still don't know what happened to the bottle of champagne!
