    Spectator Life’s 5th birthday party: in pictures

    27 April 2017

    On Thursday night, Spectator Life editor Toby Young welcomed guests to The Hari hotel in Belgravia to celebrate the magazine’s fifth birthday. Joan Collins and Piers Morgan were among those in attendance alongside The Spectator’s chairman, Andrew Neil, and editor, Fraser Nelson. As Isabel Oakeshott mused her next book project, Celia Walden confessed her new found penchant for self-help books. Drinks, including Aperol spritzes and lychee martinis, flowed freely while beetroot and goats cheese tarts were happily scoffed, and guests waltzed off with goodie bags containing Ila beauty products.

    Here’s a selection pictures from our night on the tiles…
