London Seafood Festival - Oyster Masterclass on the Thames

Ends 13 Jun 2019 at 7:00 PM

Celebrate London Seafood Festival with an onboard masterclass in molluscs


Following last year’s sell-out event, MBNA Thames Clippers and Wright Brothers are hosting an exclusive oyster masterclass on the River Thames as part of London Seafood Festival.

Join us aboard our brand new Venus Clipper on Thursday 13 June to hear in-depth tuition from oyster experts and founders of Wright Brothers, Ben Wright and Robin Hancock, as you sail through the city.

Suited to seafood connoisseurs and novices alike, the masterclass will explain the health benefits of seafood and dispel common myths and misconceptions about molluscs, as well as including a selection of oysters and English sparkling wine from award-winning producer Ridgeview – all in the surroundings of unparalleled views of London.

Departing from London Bridge City Pier at 7 pm, Venus Clipper will pass iconic London landmarks including Shakespeare’s Globe, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament before docking beside the iconic Battersea Power Station at 8:10 pm.

You can continue the experience on land with a ticket that includes a two-course dinner at Wright Brothers Battersea, or alternatively, remain on board for a return journey arriving at London Bridge City Pier at 8:40 p.m. A licensed bar will be available on the boat for the return journey.

Tickets for the masterclass cost £45, or £70 with a two-course dinner at Wright Brothers Battersea.
