This year the Laying Up Supper will be held in the prestigious Royal Naval and Royal Albert Yacht Club, located in Old Portsmouth.
The dress code is smart with the theme 'black and white with a touch of sparkle'.
This is also the weekend of the Victorian Festival of Christmas at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, so why not make a weekend of it and book your tickets online?
