Bristol Harbour Festival 2022 at Brunel's SS Great Britain


Bristolians will be able to explore the city's largest dry dock and hear about its incredible history during harbour festival on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 July. They will hear about plans to conserve the dock, continue ship repair and develop a STEM learning heritage attraction alongside Brunel's SS Great Britain.

There will be free entry to the Albion Dockyard at Hanover Place from 11am to 4pm each day. Staff and volunteers from the SS Great Britain Trust and Albion Dock Company will welcome people in and direct them along the 540ft-long Grade-II listed dock for unique views of the working shipyard and harbour.

Tall Ship Fridtjof Nansen will be in the dry dock with the crew inviting people to hear about the work of youth development charity Seas Your Future. The charity operates two tall ships (Pelican of London will be located by M Shed), both associated with the Albion Dockyard and both operating global sailing expeditions including working with marine scientists.

Close to the Albion Dockyard, Brunel Square will be a hub of activity during harbour festival. A new yearlong outdoor photography exhibition is set to open for harbour festival, showcasing the theme of discovery and Bristol's global connections through the SS Great Britain – the world's first great ocean liner – and the Albion Dockyard, where thousands of ships were built.

Brunel Square will also have a pop-up bar and barbecue with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the harbourside.
