Following the reception, everyone gathered at a fabulous new restaurant at Vauxhall called Counter. As well as being a well-known expert on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, Mark is also one of the co-founders of Antiques Young Guns along with Gail McLeod and George Johnson. Drinks, dinner, and lots of conversation ensued until the wee hours of the morning. A Diva’s work is never done!
