Oriental Live and Farewell To Jenna

1 September

Don’t forget to come to my music night tomorrow night (1 September) in our gorgeous cocktail bar.
Entertainment starts at 7:30 with me and my friends.

I have worked my final shift as a receptionist today as I am sadly leaving The Oriental to persue my music and studies. I have loved working here and want to say a massive thank you to all the staff and guests I have met. It has been a real pleasure and a hotel that I adore. I will still be running music nights on the first Thursday of every month so I hope to see you at those events.
