The TopNux 2006 delegates are warmly invited to an
evening reception which will be held at the Two Temple Place
on Tuesday 21 March, 6.30-8.30pm. Only delegates can attend this event.
There can be few mansions in London as breathtaking
as Two Temple Place, built in 1895 for Lord William Astor Waldorf
as his residence and estate office. The interior especially is a stunning
example of late-Victorian design, workmanship and architecture.
The reception will be held at the Great Hall overlooking
the Thames River. The renaissance-style hall boasts a hammer beam
ceiling carved in Spanish mahogany, panelled walls in pencil cedar,
a carved and gilded frieze showing characters famous in history and
fiction, and glass stained windows. It is an unforgettable setting
for the TopNux reception.
