We are 100!

The publicity launch for our centenary celebrations in June was kicked off on Tuesday, when 100 members of Museum and wider Historic Dockyard staff posed in front of HMS Victory in the shape of the number 100.

The sun was shining, fortunately, but was accompanied by a pretty strong and cold breeze, so it wasn't exactly a good hair day. Luckily, the photographer was several feet in the air on a mobile crane and the long distance shot was perfect for hiding those 'windswept' styles!

The final images will be used in our literature and publicity materials over the coming weeks, and we will be announcing further details of events and celebrations to mark 100 years since the Museum first opened in June 1911.

You can keep up with the latest centenary and other news by following us on Facebook and, coming soon, we will also be launching our very own Twitter feed.
