English National Ballet dancers provide grace and elegance at the switching on of the Milestone Hotel’s Christmas Lights

The second ‘Switching on’ of the Christmas Lights at the Milestone Hotel took, place this week. Local children accompanied by parents attended, with members (Becky Cooke and Alicia Tolchinsky) of the Natalia Kremen Ballet School performing in the Windsor Suite. Three members of the English National Ballet (Anjuli Hudson, Kerry Birkett and Stina Quagebeur) looked beautiful in their ‘Nutcracker’ costumes. Indeed when they entered the Windsor Suite, there was an instant hush. The dancers then accompanied by Mrs Tollman, owner of the Red Carnation Hotel, went to the balcony of the Prince Albert Suite, overlooking Kensington high St. to switch on the lights, after the obligatory countdown led by Andrew Pike, manager of The Milestone Hotel. It is quite clear this is an annual event in the Kensington calender and already people were talking about next year!
