DIARY: EVENING OUT WITH ... CARLTON DIGITAL SALES - Lexie Goddard goes bump in the night with Carlton

6.30pm The London Dungeon I shuffle past beheaded witches and screaming skeletons (still clinging to the cloakroom attendant’s hand) to find Carlton Digital Sales and media agency folk hanging out in the vampire section.

6.30pm The London Dungeon I shuffle past beheaded witches and

screaming skeletons (still clinging to the cloakroom attendant’s hand)

to find Carlton Digital Sales and media agency folk hanging out in the

vampire section.



The ghoulish bash is to celebrate the London Dungeon’s sponsorship of

Carlton Screen’s Halloween weekend.



Mark ’Elvis’ Mawston, Carlton Digital’s silver-tongued account manager,

is schmoozing MindShare and MediaVest above the rattling of chains and

eerie moans.



After a few glasses of champagne with ’eyeballs’ (lychees) we are

summoned into a courtroom to be sentenced to death. The Grim Reaper

takes us on a boat ’down the Thames’, past various forms of torture

before reaching the firing squad. We are then ’shot’.



Feeling surprisingly chipper, we get stuck in to more champers. Everyone

is ’mullered’, as agency sales manager and resident Italian stallion

John De Napoli delicately puts it. Bombshellette Natalie Gartshore

pleads: ’If I don’t look absolutely gorgeous you won’t print my photo

will you?’ ’Course not, love.



9.30pm Hornimans at the Hay Those who escape from the dungeons stagger

down to the improbably named Thames-side pub to recover. I don’t spot

any horny men, but chat to somebody called Malcolm about diving. He’s a

pleasant chap, but it’s hardly love at first bite.
