Wessex Branch Formal Dinner – Fort Nelson, Royal Armouries

Royal Armouries, Fort Nelson, Portsdown Hill Rd, Fareham PO17 6AN

Please join us for our formal dinner event on Friday 23 February 2018 at Fort Nelson, Royal Armouries, as we share and enjoy our annual branch dinner in this unique environment.

Discover the national collection of artillery at the Royal Armouries within the fully restored Victorian fort which has 19 acres of ramparts, outer fortifications, secret underground tunnels, and ammunition bunkers.

During the evening we will learn briefly of the fort’s history, some of its development and of the upcoming sculpture to be formed from poppies used in the celebrated Tower of London tribute which is to be erected on the ramparts of Fort Nelson. Wave - a creation from more than 5,000 of the ceramic poppies by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper - will feature from 13 April to 24 June 2018 as one of the final destinations of its tour.

The full menu available at this dinner can be found on the attached document and menu choices should be selected on the options survey no later than Tuesday 13th February.
