This gripping account, constructed upon scrupulous research and the revelations of the Sue Gray report, blends authentic footage from the real world with dramatized portrayals of events occurring within Number 10, including the notorious parties.

While ordinary citizens were mandated to adhere to pandemic regulations, Partygate sheds light on the behaviour of those tasked with crafting these very rules as they revealed secretly behind the closed doors of the Prime Minister’s residence.

Partygate meticulously dissects the events within Downing Street, some of which extended into the early hours of the morning, featuring scenes of celebration and extravagance that align with verified accounts. This is a narrative that astonishes, incenses, and transcends the realm of satire.
