Representatives of local businesses and community organisations gathered at Glaziers Hall in Montague Close to examine the recently refurbished events facilities. Canapes were supplied by Red Eventful Cuisine
The gathering was addressed by representatives of Glaziers Hall and Southwark Playhouse. Kelvin McDonald of Bankside Restaurants – one of the theatre's partners for its ambitious Canterbury Tales production – also spoke about his commitment to the local community.
The assembled crowd then moved to the George Inn in Borough High Street for the start of the performance.
