Guests of Honour

Great parties need great guests. And while everyone is invited to The Greatest Party of All Time, every month we highlight someone we admire and make sure that they’re on the guestlist by sending them a 2269 invitation.

Our gift of a 2269 print – an invitation to the greatest party of all time on June 6th, 2269 – is designed to be passed from one generation to the next and is our way of welcoming our Guests of Honour and their descendants.

If you would like to nominate someone, please let us know.
