2024 marks a very big year for the RNLI – it’s 200th year anniversary of Saving Lives at Sea.

To mark this special occasion, Southend RNLI are holding a Dinner at the Cliffs Pavilion in Southend on Sea, Essex on Saturday 9th March 2024.

You are invited to join us for an opportunity to honour & dine with some of the Southend Lifeboat crew and members of the Southend Branch, whilst we mark this milestone in our history book.

We will be holding a large dinner (& dance for those who wish) in the Auditorium of the Cliffs Pavilion in Southend, not only to mark the 200 year celebration but to thank the crew of one of the busiest coastal stations in the UK! The evening will include a carefully selected 3 course meal, live band and DJ, auction and raffle and a few more surprises up our sleeve!

You are welcome to purchase an entire table, or you can purchase individual tickets, where you will be placed together with likeminded people to make up a larger table.
