Maritime Memory Catchers

Tuesday 15th August 2017
Venue: Market Square

This summer the Maritime Memories Machine will be touring the country collecting your stories of the sea. This is a unique chance for your memories to be part of a national museum collection as the stories we collect will find a home in the new Sea Things gallery at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.

Days in a deckchair or dug in behind a windbreak, sand in sandwiches, pebbles in flip flops. In the storm, in the calm, in the pub, fishermen, sailors, migration journeys, day-trippers. Visit the Maritime Memories Machine to tell us what the sea means to you.
