Education outreach:

In 2011 we created an ‘Education Outreach Fish Box’ that is sent out to schools with a teacher’s pack and or volunteer. We put on four maritime puppet shows for the ‘Coastival Festival’ weekend and two children at the Friarage School who made the puppets. A school to a work experience pupil was taken on for 1 week. We have since given many more talks on maritime history in local schools.

World War One Centenary:

In 2014, we put on exhibitions and events to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of WW1 and the bombardment of Scarborough in December 1914. We organized the Civic Commemoration event at the town hall that gained regional and national media coverage.  We created a travelling exhibition that was seen by hundreds of people across the borough. We published a limited edition centenary book that completely sold out.

Conclusion:

Since 2009 over 25,000 people have visited our small Centre and all the comments in our guest book and on the 'Trip Advisor' website attest to the excellent service we are providing.

Exhibitions put on since 2009:
