Gala Dinner - Thursday 16th March 7pm – 10.45pm



Cutty Sark, King William Walk, London SE10 9HT

Thursday 16th March

Our Gala Dinner will be held in the dry dock of the legendary 19th century sailing ship, the Cutty Sark.

This truly is an amazing venue and will be the most memorable of evenings.

We begin with our privately charted Thames Clipper taking you downriver from London Bridge pier to Greenwich, providing you with a whole new perspective of London. On arrival at Greenwich Pier, we’ll disembark and enter the fabulous dry dock area beneath the Cutty Sark to enjoy a welcome drink. The ship’s curator will provide an introduction to the historic sailing ship, the fastest and greatest of her time before you're set free to explore the various decks yourself. Finally, under the beautiful, gleaming copper hull of the tea clipper we’ll enjoy a fabulous three course meal as we are dwarfed by 963 tons of beautifully conserved Victorian mastery. We’ll then set sail on our very own modern-day Thames Clipper, speeding us all back to central London in no time at all.

This amazing evening is included when joining us as a full conference delegate.
