Food Hygiene Summer Soiree

The weather was gorgeous for the outdoor Summer Soiree, a first for the Society of Food Hygiene & Technology. 

The fun and exciting Drayton Manor Hotel played host to the Society of Food Hygiene & Technology’s first ever Summer Soiree.  The weather was beautiful for a July evening, something we can’t always count on in England, so the guests were able to enjoy summer cocktails and canapes in the bandstand area – accompanied by entertaining harp music.

As the organisers wanted to maintain a happy and relaxed atmosphere, I kept the music light with familiar tunes such as Moon River, Love is like a Butterfly and the Spanish Dance from Bizet’s Carmen.  Then the special requests started coming in for a couple classical pieces to really show off the harp, and classical favourites such as Fur Elise and Pachabel’s Canon in D.  Soon the group was gravitating towards the harp and moving closer to listen with one ear whilst continuing their networking.  It was really fun!

“Dear Michelle, our members thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful harp music, it was exactly what we wanted to create a light and elegant atmosphere for our Summer Soiree.  Thank you!”  Su Werran
