Invitation to Smoke On The Water

Wed 14th May, 2014

It's that time of year again when we invite you to join us for Smoke On The Water, Forest's popular annual boat party.

This year's event is on Tuesday 24th June, the same day as England's final group match in the World Cup. The game against Costa Rica kicks off at 5.00pm, finishing around 6.50. If you're already in Westminster (in a local pub, for example!) there's plenty of time before we set off.

Guests can board The Elizabethan from 7.15 at Westminster Pier where it will be static for an hour before we set off on a two-hour cruise, returning to Festival Pier on the South Bank at 10.15.

Win, lose or draw, we hope everyone will be in party mood. To alleviate any potential gloom, we've booked a live samba band to create a carnival atmosphere.

Smoking is permitted on the external walkways and rear open deck. The good news for vapers is that electronic cigarettes are permitted inside as well as out.

The Elizabethan can accommodate 235 guests but its best feature is a unique sliding roof that gives passengers a fantastic view of the London skyline as the Mississippi style paddle steamer cruises along the Thames.

Tickets are FREE but you MUST register in advance because places are limited. Friends, family and work colleagues are welcome too.

To register email events@forestonline.org or telephone Nicky on 01223 370156.

We look forward to seeing you.
