Devizes Festival 2014 season has started and ABD is proud to be a Key Sponsor of the whole event. The festival runs from 4 – 22 June inclusive and recently an event took place that they were delighted to sponsor in particular...

The ABD Property Team invited their guests to “An evening with Jenny Éclair” which took place in the Corn Exchange on the evening of Wednesday 4 June 2014 – the opening night of the festival. 

After enjoying a lovely two course buffet in the Peppermill Restaurant especially created by Head Chef Leon Sheppard and his team, ABD Team and their guests seated themselves in the Corn Exchange in readiness to enjoy the show “Eclairious”.  The Corn Exchange was as you can imagine a “busy” venue that night.

Owner of the Peppermill Restaurant Philip Oshea and his head chef Leon Sheppard put on a fabulous spread of food.

Who is Jenny Éclair?

Jenny Éclair is a woman of many talents and due to popular demand following her recent successful previous tours she was back with her new stand up show Eclairious!

Trained as a straight actress she has appeared on TV series “Holby City” and “The Bill” but you may recognise her more so from TV shows such as “I am a celebrity... Get me out of here”, “Grumpy Old Women”, “Celebrity Masterchef”, “This Morning” and “Loose Women”. Jenny is also writer, radio show host and pantomime star! 

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! 

From the moment she appeared until the moment she finished, Jenny was hilarious – there wasn't a dry eye in the house! The laughter just kept on going.  After she finished her show she did a book signing session and a little later on took time out to chat and have photos taken with Keshani Douglas, PR, Events and Marketing Manager at ABD. Keshani said “she is just so funny, a delight to talk to and such a lovely person with it”.
