We went to Virgin Records 40th birthday party and it rocked.


Last night, we were lucky to get invited down to the 40th birthday party of Virgin Records. The night was made up of two events, first the exhibition at Victoria House on Southampton Row and secondly the after party an amazing building on Cavendish Square.

To celebrate their 40th birthday, Virgin records (which is now part of Universal under the “Virgin EMI” label) have created a pretty impressive exhibition of the labels history over the past 40 years. We saw everything from Phil Collins Drum Kit to a bottle of Spice Girls Impulse deodorant (very impressive). The exhibition is free for all but is only on until 29th October. Of course no Virgin party would feel right without the big man Richard Branson making an appearance and sure enough he was there.

After the exhibition we moved onto the after party, which was split over three floors of an amazing central London townhouse. This building could have easily been an embassy and made us feel like we were at the best house party we’ve ever been to. Split over three floors of this giant building were top DJ’s including Jazzie B. The basement was playing full on deep house thumpers which of course we loved. After one too many drinks it was time to get the night bus home, but what a night we had.

Thanks for a great night Virgin and for all those free drinks!
