QEII's 50th Anniversary

04/09/2017 - 05/09/2017

September 2017 sees the 50th anniversary of the launch of Queen Elizabeth II, one of the worlds most sumptuous and celebrated ocean liner.

QEII served for longer than any other transatlantic liner, travelled further than any other ships in history, visited almost every port in the world, and was welcomed by many wherever she docked.

Eric Flounders, Cunard's former Public Relations Manager for 27 years (until retirement in 2011) and book author, will cover her 40 year lifespan of glamour and ostentation.

The event will cost £75 and will include coffee upon arrival; a presentation by Eric Flounders will be followed by a pre-lunch drink, which will be proceeded by a three course lunch with coffee and or your choice of red or white wine to accompany lunch.

The set lunch menu will be confirmed nearer the date. Guests will be seated on banqueting tables of 10/12

Chewton Glen will be donating £10 per ticket to Cunard's nominated charity, The Prince's Trust.
