Protocol Club members gathered at the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel for mulled wine and festive treats and a traditional Christmas quiz with a twist compiled by Embassy
editor Elizabeth Stewart.
There was a cacophony of laughter and jingling bells as quiz teams vied to answer the series of multi-faith festive-themed questions. It came down to a tie between the Snowmen and the Elves but after a quick-jingle round the Elves emerged victorious and were rewarded with Embassy chocolates.
Christmas came early when Santa’s reindeer (aka Elizabeth) turned up to give out prizes to some lucky private secretaries and the evening ended very merrily indeed.
