Fans of Back to the Future were in for a treat last night as London events venue 30 Euston Square celebrated its second birthday with a party inspired by the 30th anniversary of the iconic film franchise, raising over£1,500 for a campaign to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research.
30 Euston Square recognised its landmark address by celebrating 30 years since Marty McFly and Doc Brown first hit our screens, hosting an extravaganza in partnership with Up to 88!, the official fundraiser for Showmasters in association with Team Fox.
On Wednesday 24 June, the venue welcomed 200 guests to the Grade II* listed building as part of its celebrations to mark two years since officially opening, with the food and drink on offer – including canapés such as Bloody Mary gazpacho with dry ice, and a dedicated ‘American diner’ food station – all in keeping with the Back to the Future theme.
The grand charity draw saw lucky winners take home prizes including dinner at the exclusive Gherkin restaurant, Champagne afternoon tea at the Pump Room in Bath and tickets to the exclusive dinner event at Blenheim Palace, with the money raised contributing to Up to 88!’s $88,000 target to help fund crucial research into Parkinson’s disease.
Yvette Chatwin, general manager at 30 Euston Square, comments: “Our second birthday/30th anniversary of Back to the Future party was a huge success, and we’re delighted to have raised so much for what is an incredibly worthy cause.
“Tying in with Back to the Future as the film marks its own 30th anniversary was an unforgettable way to celebrate our second birthday, and we hope all our guests enjoyed the evening.”
