Our after-dinner speaker will be a man who has devoted most of his life to the noble cause of freeing Britain from the anti-democratic European Union: DANIEL HANNAN MEP. One of the most inspiring speakers of our time, Dan needs no introduction from me; we are honoured that he has agreed to speak to us on this very special occasion.

En suite accommodation at a 3-star hotel in Southsea, overlooking The Solent.
Thursday: visit the nearby Royal Marines Museum. Guided tour and Falklands War 35th Anniversary Victory Dinner in this magnificent building, formerly one of Britain’s finest officers’ messes. The guest speaker will be a politician who will speak about Margaret Thatcher and the British victory over Argentina in the Falklands War. Friday: visit to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, via the Gosport Ferry and The Falkland Gardens, including a private guided tour of HMS Alliance by an ex-submariner, a talk by a submarine expert and lunch at the museum. Saturday: Armed Forces Day would be a great day to spend visiting the many attractions of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, with lots of free special events going on throughout the day. In the evening, you could have dinner at The Courtyard in Southsea Castle, very close to our hotel.
As a guide, if you are interested in the Falklands Victory Weekend, it is likely to cost you around £200 per person for the 2-night weekend, or £240 per person for single occupancy. Don’t forget to add £150 per person for the Brexit Victory Dinner on the Friday night. If you wish to stay on Saturday night as well, add another £60 per person (£80 per person for single occupancy). NB: costs given are estimates only – full details will be sent to you in the next couple of weeks.
Essentially, especially if you don’t live within easy reach of Portsmouth, you will need to travel and stay overnight anyway, so you may find making a weekend of it an attractive option that won’t cost too much more than just going to the Brexit Victory Dinner.
