COLLINGWOOD 2010 CELEBRATES LIFE OF TRAFALGAR ADMIRAL

Another article promoting the 2010 Collingwood Festival, and there are some interesting details about some of the planned events:

  • Collingwood’s personal log book from his time on the 50-gun ship Portland will be on display at Discovery Museum.
  • The exhibition includes paintings, extracts from Collingwood’s letters and other objects personal to him.
  • On the weekend of 6 and 7 March there will be a memorial service in Collingwood’s honour at St Nicholas Cathedral in Newcastle.
  • On the same weekend a naval and military parade will take place throughout the city and there are plans to sail warships to the Collingwood Memorial at Tynemouth.
  • A range of concerts, dinner events and open days are also planned.

No word yet regarding activities elsewhere.

Then I may not be spending as much of that weekend in Durham as I thought…
At least it’s close!

I foresee a bit too much running backwards and forwards over the border this year anyway – it can only get worse :)
