Around the World on Container Ships – IMT Spring Talks

1st February 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Around the World on Container Ships by Peter Hesketh

Travelling around the world on container ships is positively not a cruise! Taking just under four months and with one or two unforeseen factors in the mix, this was certainly an experience of a lifetime.

I started my working life in the British Merchant Navy, followed by 30 years as a Police Officer and latterly as a mediator, but always having the call of the sea in my blood.

My talk is not a list of places I visited but an insight into modern shipping and the people who make the ships work.

Car parking is available in the nearby Duke St car park or at IBC pay car parks at St Peters Wharf or Fore St Baths.

The cost for attending a talk is £3.50 for members and £4.50 for guests; included are free tea, coffee and biscuits after the talk.

We no longer require pre-booking of tickets for our talks and take both card and cash payments.
