Unveiling Drapes: Honouring Icons

This event saw bronze statues of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards revealed by our beautiful light blue satin drape. Aptly named ‘The Glimmer Twins’, these stunning statues are the handiwork of the exceptionally talented Amy Goodman. Dartford is the two icon’s hometown and their bronze statues will now be a permanent fixture in the towns high-street.
