Leading event catering company Admirable Crichton is on the verge of going into administration, owning money to creditors.
A notice of intention to appoint an administrator was filed in the High Court yesterday and Brian Johnson and Peter Kubik of chartered accountants UHY Hacker Young have been instructed to commence administration proceedings.
Renowned for its flamboyant parties, often in exotic locations, the company was founded in 1984 by Johnny Roxburgh and his business partner Rolline Frewen. It coordinated the Queen's 80th birthday party at Kew Palace and held a Royal Warrant for the provision of catering service to the Price of Wales.
Roxburgh resigned as a director of Admirable Crichton in 2014, but Frewen remained as a director, according to Companies House. He now runs party planning business Johnny Roxburgh.
Managing director of Admirable Crichton today is Ruth Lawton-Owen.
Money owned by Admirable Crichton includes a £33,000 bill to chef agency Heat London.
