The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining has offered its headquarters at 1 Carlton House Terrace, London, UK, for the Trooping of the Colour event on 11 June to raise funds for the Quicksilver team World Water Speed Record campaign.

Guests can experience British pageantry at its best, with excellent views from a private terrace as Her Majesty the Queen processes along the Mall below. Watch the horseback parade at close quarters and then enjoy the Trooping of the Colour itself on screens from within the building, returning to the terrace for the return procession and RAF flypast.

Former World Light-heavyweight Boxing Champion John Conteh will provide an entertaining insight into a fascinating life that has embraced both the boxing ring and the West End stage, using his sharp Liverpudlian wit to great effect. Don Wales the third generation of the illustrious Campbell family to contest speed records at the wheel of a Bluebird will talk about his upcoming bid for the World Land Speed Record for Electric-powered cars. Nigel MacKnight will also stage a multimedia presentation on the Quicksilver World Water Speed Record Challenge.

Only 90 tickets are available for this event, which includes all drinks and a first-rate fork buffet lunch for a ticket price of only 75, with all profits being donated to the Quicksilver World Water Speed Record campaign.
