Morrison’s extensive portrait depicts 90 GREAT BRITONS chosen from the world of science, medicine, film, music, charity, food, theatre, philanthropy, sport, fashion, business, television, arts, literature, architecture and technology. 90 in celebration of the Queen’s 90 birthday in 2016.
The portrait was unveiled last night to the press by a Alistair Morrison and a glittering array of characters from the portrait including Dame Shirley Bassey, Dame Tracey Edwards, Dame Barbara-Bradford, Mary Berry, The Who’s Roger Daltry, The Kinks’ Ray Davies, UB40’s Ali Campbell, David Gandy, Rufus Sewell, Duncan Goodhew and Robert Braithwaite.
In her speech, Dame Barbara Taylor-Bradford remarked what a fitting day it was to unveil the piece as it would have been Winston Churchill’s 142nd birthday, a man who completely embodied the Great Briton accolade
The select dinner for 50, saw guests enjoy sharing platters from the Mondrian’s exclusive Sea Containers restaurant with spectacular views of the River Thames.
Robert Braithwaite commented ‘It is wonderful to be recognised, but really this is for the whole team, the Sunseeker family. Without a team and passion you have nothing and we should always remember that as a Great British company, Sunseeker has British values at it’s heart. Alistair is extremely talented and this has been a super evening’
