SEA TOUR

26.04.2024 - 20.07.2024

Following the film's premiere at the National Maritime Museum, iconic Thames sailing barge Blue Mermaid sets sail from Greenwich on a unique tour, visiting ten ports on the Southeast coast between April and July 2024. At each destination, the hold will be transformed into a floating cinema for intimate screenings of Wind, Tide & Oar.

 

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Skippers of the Future project will see young people crew the barge along the way, earning the National Historic Ships 'Introductory Certificate in Traditional Seafaring' alongside crucial life skills. Operated by Sea-Change Sailing Trust, the project will inspire youngsters to consider a career in the maritime industry and increase awareness of the Thames barge heritage.

 

Come aboard to experience Thames barge heritage, enjoy the film in a unique setting, and ask questions at a Q&A after each showing.

Please note that Blue Mermaid is not fully accessible to people with restricted mobility. With this in mind, we are offering two fully accessible screenings as part of the Sea Tour.

Screenings are free - book below to reserve a ticket
