One of our receptionists, Emma Kind, was lucky enough to experience a theatre experience and hotel stay in London!
“As part of our winter staff party we decided to hold a golden ticket draw, where colleague names were entered for a chance to win a free night stay in the Mayfair Hotel, London and tickets to go and see a show of your choice.
To my surprise and delight, I won the golden ticket draw and was able to have 2 unforgettable experiences!
For the show, I chose to see the School of Rock and it did not disappoint. The performance was full of action and life, especially when the actors played their own instruments live; it really created a concert atmosphere, which was almost like getting to see a theatre show and band perform all in one!
I later took my stay at the Mayfair Hotel, London, where I was greeted by the Valet as they graciously opened the door for me. Upon checking in I was greeted with a warm welcome and directions to my room. As you will see, the room was lovely and spacious with simple but elegant furnishings. The bed was extremely soft and comfortable and the bathroom gave you a choice of either a bath or a standing shower. The view was beautiful and full of city life, and although the traffic was constant, you would think you were worlds away from the busy London centre as there was no sound from the streets at all. Breakfast in the morning was utterly delicious and I was very reluctant to leave!
All in all both activities were a wonderful treat and really showed just how much Westminster College cares for its staff and the lengths that they will go to, to make sure we are appreciated”
