Dinner and dance cruises have been a re-emerging trend for our boat parties this year. Maybe it’s in keeping with the whole celebratory mood of 2012, but the black tie dinner on the river is back.

And Turk’s love to host them! As a 300 year old company we value tradition. The good old fashioned virtues of politeness and attention to detail are ingrained in everything we do.

The boats are laid out elegantly with crisp white tablecloths and silverware. A casino table can be added for an extra touch of banter and rivalry to the evening!

Decorations can be tailored to what you want whether its simple sophistication, a particular theme or something to work with your company branding.  As the party gets under way, there’s just a quintessential mix of glamour, tradition and fun.

Exquisitely served food is all part of what makes a party. We work with an exceptional catering company Gorgeous Foods on the River who share our passion for perfection and presentation.

Black Tie  dinner and dances on the river are particularly popular for Corporate events. Whether celebrating with staff or wanting to entertain guests, we help you to impress.

”I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Turks for making the event so enjoyable and so memorable. Everyone has commented on the professionalism of your personnel, the excellent food and music that had everyone of all ages ‘letting go’. It is fair to say that everyone  from across the country had an inspirational night to remember.” S Walden

To make party planning easier choose from  entertaining packages or go for something more bespoke.
