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