Diary: Carry on Creative Circle

Fancy dress in the style of the Carry On ... films was the theme of the Creative Circle Awards at The Brewery in London's East End on Monday night.

Creatives gobbled bangers and mash while Christopher Biggins, the evening's host, looked on. Trevor Beattie, Creative Circle's outgoing president, was resplendent in a Carry On Constable-inspired outfit and the room was upstanding when a posthumous award went to Ron Collins. His son Damon accepted it and Beattie ensured each table had a bottle of Cinzano to toast Collins senior's memory. We know it was the 70s, but only a genius could sell that stuff to the nation.
