Yuletide ashore is a jolly time of the year for families and friends to get together. But how about those working at sea, spending the festive season far away from home, apart from their loved ones? Join the crew and artists aboard LV21 to spare a moment to think about these salty seafarers, of past and present, and find out how they brought some traditional festive cheer to their Christmas Day at sea. Explore the decks and immerse yourself in the mesmerising story of HMS Wakeful, make your own nautical Christmas decoration to take home or enjoy a festive hot toddy with a ship’s biscuit in the Galley Bar.

And if you look very carefully you might even find Benny The Beluga aboard, joining in the festivities somewhere below decks…
