Shanty Social at HMS Warrior 1860

September 9, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Step aboard HMS Warrior for an afternoon of relaxed entertainment. You can chat, eat, sample some classic Royal Navy drinks and maybe even find out a little bit about life on a Victorian warship all to a soundtrack of traditional shanty music!

What’s more there will be drinks to sample and goody bags for the first 15 people to book, so be sure to reserve your ticket now.

Spaces are limited so pre-booking is a must as space is limited on board the ship. This event is free but does not include a general visit to HMS Warrior or access to other attractions at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

ID must be shown to sample any alcoholic drinks. Non-alcoholic options will be provided.

The ‘Shanty Social at HMS Warrior 1860’ starts at 2pm on Saturday 9th September. Please wait on the Warrior jetty alongside HMS Warrior for the event to start.

Get inspired by crafty submariners, the unusual and thought-provoking items in our collection, and the work of the shipwrights combining traditional and modern techniques to work on the flagship of Horatio Nelson.
