The Elizabethan gets involved with Virgin Media's #BeTheFastest

If you happened to be taking a stroll along the river on Tuesday evening or were simply browsing through Twitter, you may have seen something very big unfolding on the Thames.

Before you ask, no – it wasn’t the fabled “Thames Monster” from earlier this year making another appearance!

Rather, Virgin Media premiered their epic new 100-second advert – which tells the emotive story behind record-breaking Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt – on a 100m-long barge screen placed alongside the London Eye.

It produced a spectacular scene, particularly for the lucky people who were invited to see it up close and personal – on none other than our beautiful Elizabethan vessel.

On the evening, the accompanying #BeTheFastest hashtag exploded on Twitter, as guests and passers-by alike posted lovely pictures of the screen from the London Eye and, in particular, the event on board a sun-drenched Elizabethan.

The evening provided another example of just how versatile our vessels are and how they can cater to whatever need you have.

Whatever event you’re looking to host, our luxury floating venues will be suited to your needs – whether it’s a birthday, wedding, themed evening or, in this case, a venue for a PR and product launch evening.

As you can see from Virgin Media’s event alone, it really is wonderful on water. Enquire with us today and set the wheels in motion for your own unforgettable event.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!
