Bill Clinton's glamorous fundraiser called "worst party ever" by angry guests
An exclusive event hosted by
and attended by a host of celebrity friends has been criticised after guests who paid up to £1,000 for tickets were left queuing outside for hours.
Attendees complained the underground venue “stank”, with perspiration “dripping off the walls” and the rooms too crowded to even see the former president.
One, who called it the “worst party ever” described how “angry people” were waiting in the queue outside while high-profile guests were admitted, and another condemned the event as “unpleasant”.
The evening had been intended as a fundraising event for the Clinton Foundation Millennium Network, which was set up to “encourage the next generation to address global challenges”.
Hosted by Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea, the night was attended by actress
and Princess Beatrice.
Glamorous photographs of the event document Clinton’s short speech addressing the issue of climate change, as well smartly-dressed attendees enjoying themselves.
A standard ticket to the event cost £125, with some understood to have paid up to £1,000 for a chance to meet the politician.
But other photographs, taken from outside the venue, show hundreds of people queuing along a wall near to the Old Vic Tunnels,
, and guests entering through doors painted with graffiti.
