31st January2nd February

  • This event has passed.

Liverymen Nick Lyford and Simon Gurney are organising a Coachmaker trip to Paris in January 2024 to visit the Retro Mobile show in the Port de Versailles.

Coachmakers will make their own way to Paris on 31st January for two nights in the five-star Bel Ami hotel just off the Boulevard St Germain and 50m from the two most famous café/bars of the left bank. The visit will comprise:

• Two nights in a five-star hotel
• Champagne and canape reception on 31st January at Les Deux Magots followed by dinner in Au pied de Cochon  – consumption of its famous pigs’ trotters not obligatory!
• Entrance to Retromobile on 1st February, including metro tickets for two days of travel wherever in Paris
• Dinner on the evening of 1st February in a private room at Benoit – Alain Ducasse’s famous Michelin star restaurant in the Fourth
• On 2nd February Coachmakers will be free to visit the sights of Paris or spend a second day at Retro Mobile if they wish.
• Those who would like to stay a further night, this may be possible if we get an early request. (It has been difficult enough finding 10 rooms in a nice hotel at this time!)

We have pre-booked 10 double rooms and the private room we have in Benoit is only for 20 persons max, so participation is limited. The cost of this exclusive trip will be £925 single and £1375 double.

Please confirm your participation to Nick at lyford_nick@yahoo.co.uk

It is likely that demand may be high for this outing, so places will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.
We will keep a reserve list just in case.

A deposit of 50% will be requested for those who are confirmed, with the remaining 50% at the beginning of December.
