Immortal toast38

ACCOMMODATION OFFER!

I have had an offer from Kate Fletcher, General Manager of The Devonport House Hotel in Greenwich for the weekend on January 16th – 18th of £96.00 per room  per night for two people sharing  a room including VAT and breakfast for any of the nights for TNS members attending The Immortal Memory.

 

Sunday 18 January 2015 at 11am at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

2015 marks 210 Years since Trafalgar and 250 years of HMS Victory

To celebrate these historic events, The Greenwich Foundation and The Nelson Society, with The Royal Naval Chapel, will meet again at Morning Service for Haydn’s Nelson Mass on Sunday 18 January 2014.   The Greenwich, Deptford and Rotherhithe Sea Cadets will be in attendance. Following the service we are invited to join the congregation in the Queen Mary Undercroft for morning coffee.  Lunch will be announced at 1.15pm and we will be seated in The King William Restaurant by 1.30pm.  After lunch we may have time for a short walk to the River Thames before moving to The Painted Hall, where we will see the completed restoration of the upper area, where Admiral Lord Nelson lay in State.  We will be entertained by the Sea Cadets and by a visiting period actor before The Immortal Memory of Admiral Lord Nelson at 3.30 pm.  Later we are invited to join The Nelson Antiques Roadshow arranged by the Warwick Leadley Gallery which will be a fun ending to the day.  Please bring your own treasure to share with all in the amazing twilight of the Painted Hall.

The cost for the day will be £38.00 per person to include the day’s lunch, refreshments, the port toast and a donation to The Painted Hall Restoration Fund. The Greenwich Foundation have a time limited matched funding offer and this function is to help raise much needed funds towards the restoration of the main Hall of The Painted Hall.
