The Shipwrights Annual Lectures 2020 – Covid 19


With much regret it has been decided that due to the ongoing restrictions imposed by Covid 19 regulations and the consequences to the UK economy this year’s Lectures scheduled for October cannot feasibly go ahead.

Carrying out the Lectures in other formats has been considered.  However, having canvassed some of our employers, it was understandable in these uncertain economic times that they would find it difficult to support the Lectures whatever the format.  

It had been an exciting prospect to welcome everyone to a new venue at the Nuffield City Theatre this time around but sadly the announcement of the closure of both the Nuffield Theatre sites in Southampton has necessarily contributed to the decision to cancel the Lectures..

While cancellation is inevitable given the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in this year, it is still very disappointing for all concerned. 

But on a positive note the Lectures Team look forward to welcoming you back to the Annual Lectures in October 2021.  A further announcement on the venue and date will be forthcoming in the early part of next year.

In the meantime we wish you good health and good luck in weathering the storm and hope you can all remain safe within the ark.
