RED CARPET TREATMENT
Well, we may not have won, but what an evening! The Whitehall Banqueting House was a magnificent setting for a ceremony that could only be described as lavish. Sir Christopher Lee presenting Helena Bonham-Carter with an award, Tim Burton receiving an award, champagne, great food, beautiful people and all in a warm and inclusive atmosphere. I think Micky would certainly have approved.

Was it worth seven hours in a car to get there and back, plus eye-watering parking costs at the Holiday Inn? Absolutely, especially given that it's only the first step in bringing the story of Micky's life to a wider public. Today - London: tomorrow - who knows!
