Enjoy lots of family fun as we celebrate our Dunkirk ‘Little Ship’ Skylark IX and memories of life around her during war and peacetime.
With performance, creative writing, heritage talks and children’s workshops, there will be something for all as the Skylark IX Recovery Project unravels the amazing story of the Dunkirk ‘Little Ship’ Skylark IX.
Visitors to the free, day-long event will enjoy Skylark’s stories during wartime and peacetime and hear all about her new life today inspiring and supporting people recovering from addictions.
During the event, which will take place during the 82nd Anniversary of Operation Dynamo and the evacuation of Dunkirk, visitors can also see and explore the ‘Skylark Tapestry’ and ‘Skylark Voices’. These new storytelling projects weave together stories and memories from the community of West Dunbartonshire and Skylark’s travels through textiles and recorded personal experience.
Visitors can also pop into the Museum to see the Skylark IX ‘Hope Floats’ exhibition, peek into the Skylark Boatbuilding Workshop and tour the Museum which sits on the spot of the world-famous, Victorian shipyard William Denny and Brothers.
