Thank you for making our first Charity Gala Dinner a roaring success

Choosing your  venue is a key decision for any event. Darwin, a specialist building company were inspired by Cutty Sark, the World’s last surviving Tea Clipper. To enhance the surroundings of this  Iconic tall ship guests were served  a  ‘Voyager’ menu  created by Fizz and   inspired by Cutty’s journeys around the globe.

‘Our  guests were intrigued to know what the ‘Voyager menu’ was all about, but at every course, whether that be Chinese, Australian or Portuguese there were compliments all round – and to enjoy all of this beneath Cutty Sark’s hull really made our evening one to remember.’
