Composer Buffet Reception

We are very proud that the UK Composer Buffet Reception was held at the prestigious Hatfield House on

Saturday 28th April 2018.

As many of you will know, the outside scenes of the two Tomb Raider movies were shot at Hatfield House or ‘Croft Manor‘ which is Lara’s home in each of the two films. We decided that this was the perfect location for our London Composer Buffet Reception.

Our Reception was held at The Old Palace which is a Grade I listed building built in 1485 by the Bishop of Ely and was used as a nursery for King Henry VIII‘s three children in 1538 – a historic venue being most famous for where Queen Elizabeth I held her first council of state. Its medieval brickwork, beautiful wall hangings and stunning gardens made it the perfect setting for our event.

Guests received an invitation from Lara Croft inviting them to the Composer Buffet Reception.
The Dress Code was: Smart Dress, DJs Optional.

Entrance to the Palace was via the Main Gate of Hatfield House, where upon a red-carpet arrival guests received their welcome glass of champagne, served by none other than Winston himself, who also provided a prize draw entry ticket to win one of the exclusive Gold Ultimate Edition Albums of The Tomb Raider Suite.

Unique string arrangements of a selection of tracks from The Tomb Raider Suite were performed live exclusively at this event by the all female octet, String Infusion (

A reception in true Croft style, guests were able to mingle with the other Tomb Raider fans and celebrities as proceedings developed, and to talk to the famous names that created and shaped Lara Croft and The Tomb Raider Suite. Photo and autograph opportunities were available.
