The Hillcrest Estate is to host a lavish trade function.

Lady Elvira Hillcrest is not convinced that this is a good idea despite the efforts of event manager Matthew Sharp and his assistant, Elaine Jenner. Fortunately Lady Hillcrest has other things on her mind, principally son and heir Tarquin’s continued inability to acquire a bride with a view to carrying on the family line. The flamboyant French personal stylist Juste Valadier is called in to turn Tarquin into a more attractive proposition.

Also in attendance is a sinister Eastern European hitman seeking out an as yet unnamed victim and clearly willing to eliminate anyone who gets in his way.  Add to the mix the homeless and possibly inbred Finneran family and blunt Yorkshire businessman, Norman Arbuthnot, with whom the Hillcrests have ‘history’, and the words of Matthew Sharp’s mantra – ‘A Successful Event is an Uneventful Event’ - seem to be falling on stony ground.
