This mission was created as a Seasonal PotBS Anniversary release event.
A strange man named Gordon Fritzsimmons has given you a tip that you'll be able to get into a British Royal Society celebration if you show up to an unremarkable location he's marked on your map. He seemed to be legitimate.
This is a two-phase mission.

The second part is attending a Winner's party, where you must mingle and entertain five other guests:
