The splendid supper at Trinity House in Newcastle seems to have been a great success, enjoyed by guests and hosts alike!

JournalLive: A SUPPER WITH… ADMIRAL LORD COLLINGWOOD

“(…) While this year marks the 200th anniversary of his death, Admiral Nelson’s right-hand man  was there in every cleverly thought-out detail of a hugely interesting and well-hosted  night. (…)”

Excellent food was enjoyed in excellent company.

“(…) The company is, of course, as important as the food and many people who sat down as strangers had a few shipmates by the end. (…)”

And thanks to Captain Stephen Healy, we have photographic evidence of this historic event!

I think we can all agree that this is a very dashing couple! I love that there was the option for historical dress along to escape the old suit and tie and little black dress routine. It suits the spirit of the evening much better.
