Events and Talks

The Friends of Newport Ship open the Ship Centre on a regular basis. Summer 2022 the centre will be opened on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm – from Friday 8th April.

2022 is the 20th Anniversary Year of the fifteenth-century merchant vessel being unearthed in the heart of Newport in 2002. Work on the Riverfront arts centre was paused while excavations could take place, and the timbers have since been undergoing a lengthy conservation process so the ship can be displayed to the public.

Events are being planned throughout 2022.

12th May 2022 19:OO – 20:30 BST – TALK: Dr Toby Jones will unravel the secrets of this mid-15th-century merchant vessel
Lysaght Institute, Orb Drive, Newport. NP19 0RA
