Coachlines - October 2023

30.10.23 The Clerk

Banquet 2024 – Friday 17th May 2024 at the Guildhall

It has been said that the Coachmakers’ Annual Banquet is one of, if not the best event of its type that is held in the City of London every year. Having attended numerous similar events arranged by many other organisations during the past 12 years I would not demur from that assertion.

The question is: Can the Coachmakers’ Annual Banquet 2024 maintain this level of excellence?

The answer is: Yes it can, but first we need a theme and the Master has decided that in 2024, the theme of the Banquet will be Navy Wings.

Why Navy Wings and what is it?

All will be revealed in the next edition of Coachlines but for now, follow this link to read about the organisation that is Navy Wings:

Of course, you may also be wondering what will be the centre-piece display at Banquet 2024?

In 2019 it was the Quicksilver Mail Coach and in 2023 it was the 2003 Le Mans winning Bentley Speed 8 – see the next edition of Coachlines for more details of 2024.

Finally, mark Friday 17th May 2024 in your diary, the book will open in January 2024.
