Battle of the Atlantic - 75 Years on

Outreach lecture series with Paul Beaver at Stockbridge Town Hall
14 November 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us at Stockbridge Town Hall where author, broadcaster and aviator Paul Beaver talks about the Battle of the Atlantic - 75 Years on.

The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest battle of the Second World War, starting on 3 September 1939 and running until almost VE Day in May 1945. Paul Beaver will describe the intensity of the Battle, why it was a close through thing and how the Allies nearly lost it. It was a race between U-boat sinkings and shipbuilding programmes.  It was to Churchill, the only thing which kept him awake at night.

During the Museum's closure we will have an outreach series of lectures taking place at Stockbridge Town Hall one Wednesday of each month from November 2018 to March 2019.

Space at the Town Hall is more limited than the Museum so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
