Saturday August 8th


THE BOAT: We've got a real treat for our next Echo boat party. We have secured a boat that is not usually hired out for club events, the absolutely beautiful 'William B'. It looks gorgeous inside and has a massive sundeck - perfect for summer. Fair warning, it's a little smaller than the boats we typically use and is likely to sell out fast!

THE PIER: The boat departs from (and returns to) Tower Millennium Pier, Lower Thames Street, London EC3N 4DT. The party starts at 4.30pm. We leave as soon as the boat is loaded. We return at 10.45pm.

AFTER PARTY (KINKY MALINKI AT LIGHTBOX): Your Echo Summer Grooves boat party ticket comes complete with free entrance to Kinky Malinki's club at Lightbox later that night . We are covering the cost of this on your behalf and there will be no increase in the usual £22 ticket price. We will be distributing official KM wristbands to all of our party goers at the door of our boat. This incredible deal is only available to Echo boat party attendees - strictly no one else. Enjoy! PHOTO ID NEEDED TO GET INTO LIGHTBOX

If you are looking for a boat party in London stay away from London Party Boats. We booked for 6 people at £100 a ticket for the NYE cruise and it was so disappointing. I have written to complain but only received a rude email from the managing director in return. Thoroughly let down and think this experience is mi sold. What a waste of money - hope others don't make the same mistake.
