Tempus Magazine looks to 2018 at its star-studded Christmas Party
New Brits sponsor Tempus announces plans for expansion in the new year
Stars of the showbiz and business worlds gathered at The Rumpus Room, Mondrian Hotel on Thursday 7 December to celebrate the festive season at Tempus’ second annual Christmas Party – as the luxury lifestyle magazine announced it will be the new sponsor of the Brits Official After Party.
While December cover star Lucas Di Grassi was unfortunately held up at the races, celebrities including Snatch star Luke Pasqualino, Made in Chelsea alum Ollie Locke, designer Joshua Kane, model Alexander James, Chloe and Lauryn Goodman, Daisy Robins, and artist Bran Symondson were on hand to party into the small hours.
Guests were entertained by singer Laura Doggett and Toploader – who performed their classic hit ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ complete with a dance performance from the model star of the original music video – while enjoying treats from sponsors including vodka cocktails by BeringIce, Luvienz Caviar Edition Champagne, and Attilus Caviar.
In addition to these brands, the star-studded event was held in collaboration with sponsors MJS Capital, and marked a new chapter in Tempus’ growth. Editor Rachel Ingram welcomed guests to the party, celebrating “this exciting year for Tempus, which started life as a watch magazine and has grown to encompass every aspect of luxury lifestyle – becoming your voice of luxury in the UK.” >>
“As many of our friends here know, Tempus has come a long way since our last party. We’ve totally relaunched and redesigned the magazine, building on our legacy as a fine watch publication to present the very best of luxury lifestyle – from style and travel to motorsports and business,” she said.
Noting this year’s successful launch of Tempus Online, digital editor Michelle Johnson announced the publication’s plans to expand further in 2018. “In a few short months Tempus has already carved its niche in the online luxury news sphere, and we are excited to share our plans for a new digital magazine in the coming months. Our digital magazine will naturally be fully integrated across platforms, and packed full of exclusive, interactive content – including video, interviews and much more.”
Before the dance floor opened up, Tempus’ editors also encouraged guests to sign up to the website’s first online Countdown to Christmas giveaway, in which they are offering 12 luxury prizes from exotic holidays, memberships to prestigious UK clubs, dinner at London restaurants and more. >>
Tempus managing director George Evans also announced the brand’s plans to move into e-commerce in the coming year. “We will be continuing our evolution from a print publication to an all-encompassing luxury guide that’s on your coffee table, your computer, and on the move on your mobile device, giving you up-to-date, exclusive content in real time,” he said.
“For 2018 and beyond, Tempus is proud to announce that it will be the main sponsor for the Brits Official After Party,” Evans continued, adding that Tempus is looking forward to new opportunities related to this prestigious sponsorship over the coming years.
The party was continued by Ministry of Sound DJs and canapés before an after party lasting into the small hours.
