Our events

Mr Carter has organised some of the most highly acclaimed events in London, including extravagant and theatrical life drawing evenings, parties like ‘Tart’ and ‘Coquette’ (spoiling afternoons of naughty self- indulgence, seductive style and decadent pampering for girls), the famous ‘Jacques Townhouse’ (London’s first pop-up hotel), and the inaugural meeting of the ‘Champagne Charlie Society’.

Pre Covid, we were focusing our creative energies on our magical 'Bedtime Story Nights' and 'Supernatural' shows. There is lots of information on both these events below, as well as a teasing selection of pictures to tempt you along in the Gallery section. Hopefully we will be back with more events VERY soon!

We love creating emotionally engaging and intellectually enlightening experiences, but our events are never stuffy...

they are always enormous fun to attend, generally quite intoxicating and often dangerously addictive. You don’t need to be a guest at the hotel to come, but you do need to book a ticket in advance.

If you would like to attend one of our fabulous events, receive a copy of the latest programme or join our exclusive mailing list, please email Daisy at reservations@40winks.org, or complete our form. We can even organise special bespoke versions of our Bedtime Story Nights for small parties of hens or birthday girls. These generally take place on Saturday afternoons (subject to availability). Details and prices by request.

Current and recent sponsors for our highly acclaimed events include MAMA Vodka, Kiss Me Deadly, Style-Suite.com, Perrier-Jouet Champagne, Hendrick's Gin, Stella Artois Cidre, JOOP! and Hepburn and Leigh, but we are always interested in exploring new collaborations and partnerships, so if there is something you would like to discuss with us, please don’t be shy!

Mr Carter is a veritable fountain of information on London’s best bars, restaurants and things to do, see and experience, so please feel free to ask him for advice.
Here are just a few of our favourites.

Keeping in touch

It makes us very happy that such a large number of our guests continue to keep in touch with us long after their stay here. The idea of a community or an extended ‘family’ is very much part our ethos. We love hearing what you are up to, and we post news, gossip and pictures on our Facebook page most days. If you haven’t already joined us on Facebook, please do. Let’s keep the conversation going!

We do also get very excited when you send us lovely postcards and hand written letters too, so please don’t be shy.
