MOP is thrilled to have kicked off the new year with family and friends, who gathered to celebrate with us at the Equinox Party on 15 March!
The vibrant music, dynamic atmosphere and the glowing Haft Seen ushered 1393 in with a bang. Many thanks to all 500 of you who attended, making it an incredibly special and joyous evening!
Footage from the event can be seen on the Manoto+ Nowrouz Special.
