The Groundsure Thames Cruise – Make your Invite Count!

The Groundsure Thames Cruise – Make your Invite Count!

It’s that time of year where we get ready for our favourite and very popular event, the Groundsure Thames Cruise. And if you’ve received an email from us, you need to register if you want to be on board and raise money for great causes! 

The Cruise has been a permanent fixture and highlight of the conveyancing and consulting industry calendar for more than a decade now. Switching between the renowned paddle steamers The Dixie Queen and The Elizabethan for years with 150 or so guests, the event has become so successful that we now fill the fabulous Silver Sturgeon, with 400 on board last year.  

As the Events Manager at Groundsure, it is my job to make sure everything on the night goes smoothly and that everyone has a great night. I spend the whole year preparing for this day and it is very rewarding to know that our clients, partners as well as our staff really enjoy it and are eager to come back year on year.

Tom Parkinson, Director and Head of Property at Rowlinsons Solicitors, says:

Attending the Groundsure Thames Cruise aboard the stunning Silver Sturgeon yacht is certainly an unforgettable experience and one of the highlights of my year. The spectacular backdrop of London’s iconic landmarks combined with the lively atmosphere and catering onboard create the perfect setting for meaningful networking, productive conversations and of course great fun!” 

Cruising for a Cause 

As a certified B-Corp, we want to ensure that we support the charities close to our heart whenever we can. So, this year we are asking our guests for a small donation upon registration. 

We are very proud to be able to gather so many members of the conveyancing industry in one place, it is an amazing opportunity for us all to catch up with familiar faces, see friends, and network with new contacts. So why not make the most of it and do some good? 

All proceeds from this year’s event will be split between Prostate Cancer UK and Breast Cancer UK. Two very important causes, I am sure you will agree.

So far we have raised £3,200 and we cannot wait to raise even more funds!

Another improvement this year is our very own club for the night! We will be hosting the after party at Tonight Josephine in Waterloo as we had outgrown Two Ruba in London Bridge. The big advantage of having our own private space is that we can party on and not worry about noise restrictions. We also get an extra hour of dancing, so what’s not to like? I am very excited for this year’s after party and I hope you will all enjoy our new venue!

Sunset Vibes on the Super Sturgeon  

We will be going back to the Silver Sturgeon for our beloved cruise. It is simply a lovely boat paired with incredible service and delicious food. We will enjoy the views of the city in the sunset with Ibiza vibes from DJ Glu Sound, our resident DJ. Electric Duo, two talented violinists who mix the sound of their classical instruments with current pop songs, will also come back following last year’s popular performance.

Laura Maggs, Head of Residential Property at Kingsley Bond Solicitors, comments:

From the moment you step onboard, you are welcomed by a lively atmosphere and stunning views of London from the River Thames. The organisers at Groundsure do an excellent job of creating a laid-back yet engaging environment where it was easy to meet new people. The music was fantastic, and the food and drinks were top-notch – definitely not your average boat party!

Finally at the after party, the amazing Martin Gordon from TwoTone DJ will help us dance the night away once again with his electric drums and upbeat tunes!  

Do not miss out – check your emails!

The Thames Cruise is an invite only event to ensure a high quality of attendees and networking opportunities. The invitations have already gone out, so make sure to check your inbox and book your ticket so you don’t miss out on the most anticipated event of the year! 

If you have misplaced your invitation or perhaps your inbox blocked the email, do drop me a line and I will happily send it to you again. Please note that I will cross check all requests with our guest list to make sure only people who were invited sign up. 

Jonathan Stebbings, Chief Commercial Officer at tmgroup, says:

The Groundsure Thames Cruise has become one of the most prestigious events in our calendar. It is widely recognised for being a very social and interactive experience by many in the industry, allowing those who attend to network extensively.  The quality of the service, food and entertainment is exceptional, not to mention the boat itself.  This is without doubt a favourite when it comes to hospitality events!

I hope that you can join us to make this year’s Thames Cruise another fun, exciting and talked about event that we can be proud of. 

See you on board!
