Jersey's Chamber of Commerce is celebrating its 250th anniversary today.

It is the oldest English speaking chamber in the world, establishing the first postal service and lobbying for an airport.

The Chamber is commemorating its special birthday with a black-tie dinner gala at the Royal Jersey Showground.

Local businesses are set to attend the event alongside impressionist and star of the new ITV show 'The Imitation Game', Rory Bremner.

The President of the Chamber has said the gala is a great "opportunity to celebrate success across all areas of the business community."

This gala evening demonstrates the representation, reach and reputation that Jersey Chamber has maintained and developed over its 250 years at the heart of the Island's community. And it gives everyone a chance to enjoy a spectacular evening of entertainment.

– Eliot Lincoln, President of Jersey Chamber

550 guests are set to attend the gala at the Showground in Trinity.
