WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY 2024!

and hoping to get good news for Balmoral from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, early in the year.

The project would pump-prime positive funds for the ship to go into dry-dock for ESSENTIAL work, along with bringing more people to our maritime heritage – through educational and community events.

Now back outside the MShed’s cranes, Balmoral contributed to the DOCKS HARBOUR HERITAGE activity, at the end of September. The ship also acted as a stage for roving bands of SHANTY FESTIVAL singers; theme and venue for education days, and hosted private parties plus regular Open days / music nights. (Free entry, tours, bar open, donations very very welcome.) Check for events on Balmoral’s Facebook page.

Images from the Harbour Festival – those cardboard boats had been made, or stored on board; choirs, theatre and photo-opportunities. Plus the Sea Shanty Festival sharing the quayside with MShed’s train, and the Britannia Lounge in party mode. Thank you to all the volunteers who help make these happen. More photos on the Balmoral Instagram account.
