London’s eco-conscious celebrities turned up in force at Australia House, home of the Australian High Commission, last week at a party thrown by ocean-saving wine, The Hidden Sea.
Stars and influencers – including Strictly Star Katya Jones, Olympian Aimee Fuller, Made in Chelsea icons Ollie Locke and Sophie Hermann and Love Islander Laura Crane partied in the Great Hall, an incredible, glamorous and cavernous room not usually opened to the public that found fame as the location for the inside of Gringotts Bank in the Harry Potter movies. The tunes were provided courtesy of NHS doc-turned superstar DJ, DR DJ Bodalia, while an intimate gig from Australian singer-songwriter and TikTok star Celina Sharma commanded the room.
The party was thrown to highlight the plight of plastic in the ocean - a growing eco concern - and one which The Hidden Sea takes a vested interest in. The Aussie wine removes 10 single use plastic bottles for every wine bottle sold and has recently marked taking over 10 million out for recycling.
The wine already has an army of famous fans, including Love Islander and free surfer, Lucie Rose Donlan and Good Morning Britain weather presenter Laura Tobin - and fellow eco warriors can pick up their wines on the high street in Co-op, Sainsburys and Asda.
