Description

All profits from the party will be going once again to:

London Magical Taxi Tour 2018

One of London's most unique charity events takes place each year when a convoy of licensed London taxis take over 200 children, suffering from a range of chronic debilitating illnesses and life limiting conditions, on a three-day trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Resort Paris®. This Magical Taxi Tour has bought moments of great joy and happiness to sick children.

This amazing convoy, can be over three miles long when running and consists of 90 plus taxis, City of London Police escorts, Gendarmerie Nationale, London Ambulance NHS Trust vehicles and AA breakdown trucks.

Organised annually, by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, this event is only possible with the help of sponsors who generously give toward the £1,400 per taxi necessary to meet the expenses of hotel, fuel, food, admission charges etc. The taxi drivers naturally give freely of their time and use of their vehicles.

The Party & Fundraising Evening

You'll be greeted with a glass of bubbly when you arrive and provided 3 drinks vouchers for use at our sponsored bar. There will also be a selection of Canapes served throughout the evening.

The venues in-house DJ will be supplying the sounds when the dance floor opens after the prize raffle; and there will be 3 Casino Tables, Routlette and Black Jack and Poker all provided this year by our Premium Sponsor 3D Innovations.

Drinks will be available from the sponsored bar in exchange for vouchers, three of which will be issued when you arrive with a valid ticket. Venue doors will open at 6pm, the bar will close just before midnight and the venue will close shortly after.
