Usborne 40th Anniversary: Kensington Palace - Stepping into the storybook

  • { Event Snapshot }

      40 LITTLE YELLOW DUCKS, 30 BLACK HATS AND MOUSTACHES, 1 POP UP BOOKSHOP

On a gorgeous summer’s evening, Usborne welcomed 300 guests for cocktails served by wittily costumed waiting staff. Canapés were offered from light boxes featuring some of the publisher’s most recognised titles and subjects. The sounds of summery jazz filled the air as guests discovered the hidden Little Yellow Ducks and eavesdropped on Black Hat spy assignations. 

The party was fully illustrated with props and a set, including a pop up book shop and flower arrangements cascading from vases. The centrepiece was a life size reproduction of Usborne’s first premises, which provided the backdrop for the founder to make his celebratory speech.
