Busy week at Brunswick House! The Spectator scoffed delightedly whilst Susan Philipsz danced from dusk to dawn. Did Turner turn in his grave as his Prize Winner celebrated at her Brunswick Bash? Susan Philipsz wrote about her amazing week in The Sunday Times.."After the award my gallery organised a party in an antiques salvage warehouse next to The Tate. It was full of chandeliers and Persian rugs and it had quite a festive feel. I had a speech prepared- it was all about being magnanimous in defeat, so instead of giving it, I danced the night away."

Meanwhile, The article in The Spectator noted that Brunswick House is "one of the most unlikely sights in South London, a mansion which nestles between a towering housing development and The Vauxhall Cross roundabout. It was rescued by LASSCO, the reclamation specialists, and stripped back to its beautiful Georgian bones" The Scoff Out feature goes on to say "Sweeping into what used to be the ballroom, you sit surrounded by the bounty of the reclamation on cathedral pews at Victorian dining tables. Chandeliers and Moorish lights cast their glow on mirrors, fireplaces and claw footed baths. For some reason a canoe hangs on [from] the roof. The food is magical, simple and carefully sourced by young chef Jackson Boxer."
"…..Spellbound I have wiled away a lot of time here. I have taken the perfect hot chocolate sitting in the sunlit courtyard surrounded by statues and ancient lions." Violet Hatfileds, the writer of this piece announces that she is " feeling very austere" and that "As winter draws in, the enchantments of Brunswick House become ever more potent. There is no better place to succumb to the yuletide fairytale compulsion inside us all"
On that note, All at Brunswick House wish you a Magical, Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
