And there's photographic evidence! MK and family are snapped, along with many other celebrity guests:

Thanks to the quick response of Tumblr bloggers 'Thatvoice' 'BritishDetectives' and others. And thanks to FlyByBee and Starlight aka AbjectAdmirer for alerting me.

At last the Mail is good for something. :lol:

2 appearances by MK. Flybybee also spotted him in the panorama shot. :geek:

SO nice to see the family.....or almost the entire family! One son and Lola were missing! They seem to be having a wonderful time!

I guess MY invite got lost in the mail. :eyeroll:

Thanks Starlight and flybybee, it just made my day! Great picture. So glad to see the shoes make an appearance!

Hope he did some networking while he was there!

Yes, networking is key! Though perhaps more for young Jack now than for Mr. Kitchen Sr. :foyle5:

In the wide shot, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd is across the table - he'd have a few industry connections for the young composer/musician. :pleased:

He went to a party and had his photo taken? Who is that and what has he done with the real MK? :foyle5: Seriously though, I hope they all enjoyed it and "Fitted" made some useful connections.

My thoughts exactly...perhaps it was all for Jack! Or Mr. Privacy has relaxed in his retirement years! :foyle1:

Looking at Jack's IMDb page, he seems to be doing OK for himself. Maybe he can get the old man a job.

Oh, wow! I didn't even know Jack had an IMDb page! He's definitely getting going on his film music composing career. Thanks, Amiga!
Well done, Jack! :thumbsup: :biggrin:

I think Mr. Kitchen seems loyal to those who have been kind to him. I think he went to the party for the guest of honor, Mr. Stoppard. I seem to recall reading that Mr. Kitchen went to a celebration for another star....Maggie Smith, maybe. I don't think ulterior motives of helping Jack would be the reason he went to Mr. Stoppard's gathering, but I'm guessing like all others. Doesn't seem Jack needs help anyway.

Also think we'll be seeing Mr. Kitchen on the screen again and he's not fully retired...on purpose, at least.

WOW what a nice treat! He looks great. Much thinner than in pics we have seen from Life of Brian Pern. A lot of celeb ex-partners there including Joanna! I sense he keeps in touch with his actor friends even though he rarely appears on screen.

JUDI DENCH'S Party! That's whose party Mr. Kitchen went to once. I was privately corrected and appreciate it!

I agree with mslevin. I bet he keeps in touch with his friends in acting. Most professionals at least network. And friends are friends regardless of one's profession!

Now, will he have a 70th celebration in October of next year with photographers?! :thumbsup:
More importantly, will the forum receive an invite?!
