Saturday 11th September 2021 was the date we finally hosted our eagerly anticipated first Black Tie onboard iconic HMS Belfast in London.
Initially scheduled for April 2020 this was the fourth and final date we had scheduled. Our exclusive guest list included supporters, beneficiaries, ambassadors, trustees and partners, we were delighted that key supporters Jeff Brazier and Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham were able to join us on the night.
The evening started with drinks on deck, enjoying the early evening weather and one of the most iconic views of London available incorporating Tower Bridge, the Tower of London adjacent to modern day architecture of the City itself.
Guests mingled freely enjoying exclusive access to the museum before being formally welcomed by StrongMen co-founders Dan Cross and Efrem Brynin before enjoying 3 course meal and drinks. Before dancing the night away to the sounds of StrongMen’s very own Pritee Almeida aka Big Mama Funk, guests bid generously for some exclusive auction items which included Alpine F1 factory tour, signed Martin Johnson England rugby shirt and match worn Ray Wilkins England football shirt.
The evening was a great success providing a fantastic platform to raise awareness as well as raising in excess of £13,000 to help us deliver our ambitious plans into 2022 and beyond. The team have already started planning 2022’s event, so please keep Saturday 10th September free and we hope to see you there, tickets will sell quickly so follow all our social media channels for further announcements #wearyourheartonyoursleeve #strongmenblacktie
