A specially tailored event for blind and visually impaired audiences and their families.

Join us for a tour of our Steam, Steel & Submarines gallery, which explores the history of the Royal Dockyard from Victorian expansion, through two world wars, the nuclear age, the closure and regeneration of the site.

There are a variety of tactile, interactive elements in this gallery which you will have chance to experience.

This audio described tour will be delivered by local artist Wendy Daws of the MESS ROOM, a community arts studio based at Sun Pier House, Chatham, who works closely with Kent Association for the Blind.
