Digital Illusionist Tom London brings the Magic Circle to MJS guests at the Tower of London
The America’s Got Talent star delighted 50 guests at a private dinner hosted by MJS Capital
America’s Got Talent star Tom London enchanted guests at a private Tower of London event with his unique digital illusions last week, when 50 guests gathered for an exclusive private dinner held within the historic tower in the capital. London, who is one of the youngest member of the esteemed Magic Circle, worked his digital magic at the event by boutique investment group MJS Capital, a thoroughly modern entertainment amid the tradition of the night.
Inside the Fusiliers Museum, guests began with a champagne reception before a three-course dinner, following historic traditions such as the passing of the port and toasts to The Queen before being entertained by the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment Pipers in traditional military dress. Artist Bran Symondson, himself a former soldier, added to the military air with displays of his new collection of works, including ‘Brutal to Beautiful’ – a gold plated AK-47.
After dinner and coffees courtesy of sponsor Difference Coffee, guests filed out to watch the Ceremony of the Keys – the locking of the Tower ceremony that has taken place every night for 750 years without exception – before making their way to a fleet of Jaguars ready to whisk them off to a secret location for the next stage of events.
Those with a ‘golden ticket’ were chauffeur driven through London to the after-party at The Wellesley, Knightsbridge, where the cigar terrace was turned into an opulent setting for after dinner drinks. Cigar and cognac connoisseur Giuseppe Ruo gave a masterclass on pairings that guests could sample – Hennessy XO Cocnac paired with Dipolatico Cigar Excelencia and Rum Zacapa Xo paired with San Louis del Rey Marquez – before mingling into the small hours.
Hosted by boutique investment house MJS Capital, and sponsored by Tempus, bespoke private jet company JetSmarter, and Difference Coffee, the event also raised funds for the PWRR Benevolent Fund. An auction included prizes such as two return shuttle seats in Europe courtesy of JetSmarter and a tandem skydive with the Army Tigers parachute team in formation.
