The guests arrived dressed as characters from the James Bond books and moveis to be greeted by two beautiful ladies on stilts offering champagne and nibbles!
The evening was action packed with entertainment by a live band, solo singers, a fire dance and eating act (the Fireflies), and a comedy routine performed by Tony's offspring entitled 'Sibling Rivelry'.
