Step on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain for an evening of spectacular immersive film.
Guests are encouraged to join us in black tie – with a ‘touch of the Seventies’ if desired – for this special screening of The Poseidon Adventure. Enjoy a sparkling drinks reception in the ship’s Dry Dock, before heading to the First Class Dining Saloon to view the film. During the interval, take the opportunity to explore the ship after hours, and enjoy a drink and canapés on the ship’s Promenade Deck.

This event is held in partnership with Rathbones.
