Thank you for attending our exciting new cocktail-style fundraiser: FOLLIES!

 New York City – On October 5th Royal Oak and members celebrated the protected landscapes of the National Trust and their architectural follies found throughout the countryside.

The Royal Oak’s indoor English garden party was hosted at a Chelsea gallery, with a transformed interior that swept attendees off to a ‘sunny’ garden dreamland – reminding us of a warmer time during those fall nights.

Sponsored by Lee Jofa, Wolffer Estates, Veranda, RubyLux and more, the evening included a silent auction and cocktails with traditional British fare.

What is a folly? An ornamental structure—oftentimes strange, fantastical, or whimsical—built for just one purpose: pleasure.

Join the conversation! Post a photo from FOLLIES to Instagram and tag it #royalfolly. Make sure to follow us @anglo_files.
