Shipwrights’ Lectures – New Date New Venue!

The Shipwrights Lectures are changing their date and venue.  To provide more seats with improved technical facilities we’ve moved next door to the Nuffield Theatre, still within the campus of the University of Southampton.  The panel discussion theme is “Innovation” will include Matthew Sheahan hosting a panel from Ben Ainslie Racing discussing the exciting technology used in the Americas Cup Challenge.

Other internationally acclaimed inspirational speakers will complement them and be revealed later.  A very exciting series of lectures is to come.

The Annual Shipwrights’ Lectures are for Marine Apprentices, young shipwrights, boatbuilders and students intending to enter the leisure marine industry following relevant courses.  Come to the lectures and be truly inspired.

Please save the new date January 10th 2018.  News and updates on speakers and the programme with be posted at and we’ll post more information in the coming weeks.
