TLC Memories: A sport spectacular aboard Dixie Queen

The beauty and flexibility of the Thames Luxury Charters fleet means we are able to host virtually any kind of event on board.

Throughout our 25 years on London's majestic river, we've always believed the heart and spirit of an event comes to life when charterers put their unique stamp on proceedings. This ensures each and every occasion we host is truly special to guests from the moment they step aboard.

It's why every client is assigned a dedicated Event Coordinator from the moment they enquire, who helps create and tailor events to bespoke requirements. Furthermore, an experienced Function Manager is present throughout on the day to ensure flawless delivery of every detail.

To help give you a greater idea of the experience you can enjoy with Thames Luxury Charters, we are delighted to share with you some of our special event memories. Here, we take a look at a sporting spectacular which took place aboard Dixie Queen in summer 2018.

Event Details

When: Summer 2018
Client: An environmental and property company
Type of event: Company summer party
Vessel: Dixie Queen
Number of guests: 400

What did they experience on board?

The nation was in the grips of a sporting fever during a balmy British summer, so it's little surprise this reached the River Thames as well. With the assistance of their dedicated event coordinator, this charterer crafted a unique sport and game-themed party aboard Dixie Queen.

Once all 400 guests had safely embarked at Butler's Wharf Pier and settled in with a canapé and drinks reception served on the upper deck, they were soon exploring the vast array of entertainment options available on board.

In keeping with the event's theme, this included air hockey, table football, plus giant Jenga. There was also the small matter of a crucial England World Cup fixture on the evening, which captivated many on two large screens, before a live band kept guests dancing all night long. An interactive photo booth ensured all the fun was captured too.

The client worked with us to create their own bespoke menu for guests to enjoy on board. This featured a range of sumptuous dishes from our Classic BBQ selection, with desserts comprising of a delicious mix of English Country Garden treats and a luxury pick 'n' mix sweet station for the sweeter toothed.

Once the four-hour cruise – which included two magnificent Tower Bridge lifts – came to a close, all guests disembarked back at Butler's Wharf Pier with a raft of new unforgettable memories to cherish.

Client feedback

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help leading up to our event. It was the biggest and best we have done! I also wanted to share a few photos with you – specifically of the dessert station which looked amazing!"
