The evening was eclipsed by the live music. A Piano Bar livened up the atmosphere during the catering for the 450-plus guests. Afterwards, an instrumental orchestra took the spotlight eventually giving way to the presentation of the Life is for Living Awards. Finally, Scarlets took center stage and closed out the night with soul.
