Bicentenary Talks – HMS Trincomalee’s Secret Stories
A series of talks by the Curator, Clare Hunt, will form part of the ship’s bicentenary celebrations this summer.
The talks are half an hour long and focus on different themes, uncovering some of the histories of the ship that aren’t covered on the site or in the guidebooks. They will take place lunchtimes and evenings in the Baltic Suite at National Museum of the Royal Navy, Hartlepool. Tickets are £5 each (£10 with entry to site) or £25 for all 6!
Hands on Deck Workshop
Date: Weds 18 October
The Curator has raided the show cases and museum stores so that you can get close up and personal with some of the sorts of objects that were on board the ship in her heyday. You can also see artefacts and personal recollections from the people who worked and trained on her. Limited numbers for this workshop
