Last night, JD threw a party fit for a world champion as they welcomed brand ambassador Anthony Joshua home from his epic second World Heavyweight Championship win with the ultimate Christmas extravaganza.
JD took over opulent 17th century stately home Aynhoe Park and transformed it into an epic AJ themed celebration for one night only, featuring giant projections of the champ that illuminated the 17th century façade, a display of his two title belts for guests to experience up close and a ‘Champs Grotto’ where UK music heavyweights Krept & Konan and Headie One performed a selection of AJ’s favourite tracks with an introduction from Specs Gonzalez, Stevo The Madman and Grime Gran.
Enjoying a rare night off, AJ got into the Christmas spirit and surprised partygoers by jumping on the mic to spontaneously freestyle with Headie One, performing to guests who including Top Boy’s Michael Ward, rap group NSG, Love Island’s Michael Griffiths and comedian Munya Chawawa.
To top the night off, breakthrough artist of 2019 Aitch surprised AJ by turning up after his own gig in Birmingham to perform at the afterparty.
AJ said, “Tonight was a great way to end the year. I’m grateful to JD and all of my supporters for such a warm welcome home. 2020 will see me continue my journey to being undisputed heavy weight champion.”
