When we told you that party pictures would appear on this blog from the Royal Court Gala sponsored by Oakley Capital in association with Time Out, we meant it. Due to technical issues, however, we regret to say that we are unable to bring you more than these two stunning snapshots. The above shows guests eating at tables at Shoreditch Town Hall; the below shows RC alumni performing a short play by Richard Bean on those tables. If you squint, you may see Matthew Macfadyen, Romola Garai and Rachel Stirling (though you may not). We apologise that this is all we can offer you; we know it’s a poor effort.
As compensation, we’ve also thrown in a lovely portrait of guest and performer on the night, Benedict Cumberbatch (below).
