QE2'S 50th Anniversary

Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, Christchurch Road, New Forest, BH25 6QS






September 2017 sees the fiftieth anniversary of the launch of Queen Elizabeth 2, arguably the most famous and celebrated of all Cunard's transatlantic liners.

QE2 served for longer than any other transatlantic liner, travelled further than any other ship in history, visited more ports around the globe than any other, and was greeted by thousands wherever she went.

Eric Flounders, Cunard's former Public Relations Manager for 27 years (until retirement in 2011) and book author, will cover her 40 years story that was not only glittering, but uncompromisingly eventful in which she dominated the seas as indubitably the most famous ship in the world.

£75 to include arrival coffee, presentation by Eric Flounders, a pre-lunch drink, three course lunch with coffee and your choice of a glass of red or white wine with lunch.

Chewton Glen will be donating £10 per ticket to Cunard's nominated charity, The Prince's Trust.

The set lunch menu will be confirmed nearer the date. Guests will be seated on banqueting tables of 10/12

Dress Code: Smart/Casual (jackets preferred for gentlemen)
