John Lewis' Summer Retreat plays host to Microsoft's Windows 10 Launch

The PrettyGreen events team were very excited to be a part of a global programme of events to celebrate the launch of Microsoft Windows 10 last night. We hosted an exclusive party for My John Lewis members at the ‘Summer Retreat’ on the rooftop of John Lewis Oxford Street. The event was to launch a 12-day takeover of the Summer Retreat that lasts until August 9th.

Along with interactive demonstrations by Windows 10 experts, guests were treated to amazing tricks from leading magician Tom London, who totally mesmerised with his digital magic. Here’s Jade, Fran and James trying to work out how the devil Tom managed to magic their card straight out of a Lenovo tablet!


Tom was also able to magic products directly from the John Lewis website straight from the tablet, we are still trying to figure out quite how he does it…

Lucky guests were also treated to delicious food and drinks from rooftop residents Rossopomodoro and Joe & The Juice. During the 12-day take over John Lewis customers can be some of the first to trial the new Windows 10 operating system in the tranquil surrounding of the Summer Retreat.
