Golden Age of the Royal Navy (1740-1815) - Wells Evening Society
5th March 2015

Economist, historian, author and recognised authority on Nelson, Peter chairs three organisations: The 1805 Club, conserving the monuments and memorials of the Georgian sailing navy; The New Waterloo Dispatch, the flagship event of Waterloo 200, which celebrates the idea that is Europe, and Thames Alive, which organised the manpowered squadron for The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in July 2012.

The period 1740-1815 witnessed the rise of British naval supremacy which laid the foundations for Britain’s nineteenth century global Empire. Through exciting and carefully chosen contemporary paintings, illustrations and caricatures the lecture will reveal both the stories and how artists interpreted the great sea battles of the age.

Venue: Wells Town Hall from 1845.

Tickets: £7 (full time students free)
