The Centre for Port and Maritime History (CPMH) is a collaborative venture between Liverpool John Moores University, the Maritime Museum and the University of Liverpool. Following on from the success of the public lectures delivered at the Maritime Museum for Cunard 175, the lectures will return, this time at Open Eye Gallery to mark the historic occasion of the naming of the new Cunard ship, Queen Anne, in Liverpool.

Tracing the history of Cunard’s majestic past, there will be lectures and visual talks, drawing on a range of rich resources from both the Cunard Archive at the University of Liverpool and ‘The Life on the Ocean Wave’ collection at Liverpool John Moores University.

Contributors are Professor Nick White, Dr Emma Roberts, Dr Graham Gladden and Dr Clare Horrocks. Topics will include discussions on the culinary delights of Cunard’s food and renowned afternoon tea, the opulent interiors of their ships, from third class to first, how they have fought off competition, pandemics and planes to become the most famous ocean liners in the world.

Join us at either 1pm or 2pm on Monday 3rd June at Open Eye Gallery, Mann Island.
