This year we are on the HQS Wellington which is now owned by the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, the HQS Wellington is moored on the Thames by the Embankment, (in the Old HMS President Berth) centrally positioned between the city and the West End, the former HMS Wellington is truly a Central London venue. An iconic venue and location, as seen on ITV’s This Morning translight backdrop, every weekday morning.
The welcome reception will be held on the quarterdeck, the Mess Dinner style meal will be held in the Courtroom (converted Engine Room) and guests will have the opportunity to have an iconic phot opportunity on the forecastle with the London Eye/Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) in the background. For a, slightly dated, virtual tour please visit https://youtu.be/3J7NYLkPyx0?t=195 and to see how this ex warship ended up as a renowned London event venue visit this link https://youtu.be/GOqJ_NO8sT4 and https://www.hcmm.org.uk/about-us/our-livery-hall/hqs-wellington.html.
A venue used by the good and great of London Livery Company’s and Royalty, will allow numerous association members to get together, as was the case in Portsmouth for the Warrior Reunion in 2018, to reminiscence, spin dits, and meet ex shipmates. In addition, this event will allow Association Members and Guests the opportunity to toast His Majesty the King, for the first time. Thus, consolidating the associations pledge in our condolence letter sent to King Charles III.
We intend to make it a weekend event, with an informal get together on the Friday evening, at a venue to be decided. The Saturday morning will be one of leisure for those that do not wish to attend the Minewarfare Association Annual General Meeting onboard the HQS Wellington, with an envisaged start time of 1000, so that we can be finished in time for the start of the final Saturday of the Six Nations Rugby!
Note: There will also be a Both Watches (informal drinks & banter) on the Friday evening. It will be at Traitors Gate courtesy of our own Basher Briggs!
