Lloyds bank advert

Early in 2015, a request for the Riley to be filmed for the Lloyds bank 250th anniversary.

The date for the filming was set for the beginning of June.

As the Riley was booked for the Shoreham anniversary later that month, it was arranged for the Riley to be transported to Rye in Kent, and then to Wells in Norfolk for the filming, and finally to Shoreham.

The advert was to show the Riley being pulled from the sea by ten black horses.

The filming of the advert was highly successful, and in July, the advert itself appeared many times on television.

Also large bill-boards were posted in London and many other major cities.
