Self Preservation Society 50

Date: 7th June 2019
Time: 18:30 - 23:00
Location: The Royal Lancaster Hotel, London
Dress code: Black Tie

Footman James customers are invited to take up the opportunity for only 50 people to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Italian Job in a dedicated suite overlooking Hyde Park at The Royal Lancaster Hotel - the hotel famous for being the venue of Charlie Croker's first night of "freedom" in the original film.


18:30 Drinks Reception

As guests arrive, each party will be presented with a copy of Matthew Field's book The Self Preservation Society - 50 years of The Italian Job. You will also have the opportunity to meet the author at the reception who will be more than happy to sign your copy of the book.

During the drinks reception, you will also be able to browse a unique selection of film posters, lobby cards and memorabilia from the film - some of which will be available for purchase.

19:00 Q&A With Michael Deeley & Hazel Collinson

Following the drinks reception, there will be a question and answer session with Academy Award-winning producer of The Italian Job, Michael Deeley. Deeley also worked as a producer on films such as The Deer Hunter and Blade Runner.

Guests will then sit down to an Italian themed three-course meal set to the soundtrack of the film.

As the meal concludes with coffee and petit fours, Hazel Collinson, wife of The Italian Job director Peter Collinson, will be answering questions on her experiences of the filming, including her appearance as a Mafia wife in the film!

Film Screening

Guests will then move into the screening room for a special showing of the film, where they will also receive an enamel lapel badge to mark the 50th anniversary.
