Discounted use of the Museum

The NMRN is happy to offer the Friends HMS Alliance/the JFB for hire on an evening for £500.00, instead of the usual £1,250.00 asked from corporate clients. Of course, this excludes any menu costings but would include use of all galleries including Holland 1 until 2100 and, of course, HMS Alliance herself. Times for hire are 1800 until 2330. Any additional costs such as security and cleaning will be added depending upon requirements. The caterers used by the NMRN are Bezani Catering (from the nearby Anglesey Hotel) which has a large array of menus to offer at a wide selection of prices. If you invite 60 of your best friends to dine in the JFB, you may get a better deal per head than if you eat in Alliance, where only 12 people can be seated in the Junior Rates' Mess. In fact, on a recent occasion a thirteenth was squeezed in without objection from the organisers. It must be remembered that the menu available in Alliance is necessarily more limited because the caterers are serving from the forends.

An example programme is as follows:
