It was a rainy day at Hoghton Tower but it did not dampen the spirits of the 60 guests that had come to see the lady of the afternoon Mrs Sarah Brown
The event that was Hosted by Silverdell Books of Kirkham was one of only three book signings that Sarah was doing this year. And she could not have got a more grand venue than Hoghton Tower.
The Great Hall looked fantastic. The ever so brilliant Melissa, event manager at Hoghton had been busy all morning lighting fires and making sure everyone kept the doors shut to keep the place warm. The tables were laid with Rowley's individual sets of Bone China Crockery and every guest got there own signed copy of Sarah's book, Behind the back door.
Paul was on hand to give the finishing touches to the table and the yummy treats that lay ahead
Meanwhile, The Supremo Mr Howard Wing was on hand to entertain the guest with his very own unique blend of Swing Music
Very shortly after, guests were called through to The Dining Room where Elaine Silverwood ran through the afternoon's proceedings and welcomed Sarah Brown
Sarah had the crowd gripped as she gave an insight into life at number 10... Not revealing too many secrets however !
Afterwards everybody was given plenty of time to get their questions answered by Sarah, before afternoon tea was served
Giving Sarah plenty of time to go round for a informal chat and to sign all of her books
The Afternoon was brought to close with a few numbers from Howard Wing's new up coming album
And for those who thought we had forgot about Gordon, well you were wrong. Some of his favourite Cereal Rice Krispie Cakes from Rowley's and a copy of Howards Album.
