Over 70 glamorous guests from up and down the country, from Wales and Liverpool to Ireland and Bath, attended the 007 themed event (0050 for Mike), at Bramhall’s Crown & Conspirator on 18th March.

Planned by his husband of 17 years, Ed Mascarenhas, Mike arrived in style at his fantastic 50th birthday party in a swanky Aston Martin.

“The party was filled with my family and friends,” smiles Mike, “my best friend of 38-years Alan even made the journey up from Bath – we’ve been friends since my school days!”

There was a classy Champagne toast on arrival, followed by canapés throughout the night created by the Crown & Conspirator chefs.

Naked Chocolatier and good friend Oliver Dunn was on hand to provide giggles and good vibes, whilst DJ John Fitzpatric provided the event’s soundtrack.

Mike gives us his thoughts on turning 50…

“I love it – now I can be naughty! It’s great to be in the exclusive club of the wise and elite. And this year will be a year of celebrations, with holidays to the Seychelles and Majorca and then a music extravaganza to TomorrowLand in Belgium!”
