HMS Belfast

Free event with general admission

A family exploring HMS Belfast

It’s 1944 and the most important day of the war so far is looming. You and your family are needed as the latest naval recruits.

As a team use your Kit Bag to find hidden messages, predict the weather for sailing, discover ship life and crack Morse code.

Learn about the biggest invasion in history as you explore HMS Belfast. This interactive storytelling experience is based on personal stories from those who served on D-Day.

Created by KIT Theatre and Kirsty Harris

Family Mission: D-Day Edition is a drop-in activity recommended for families with children aged 7+. You’ll need to collect your Kit Bag to begin. 

This activity directs you around different areas of the ship. For the best experience we recommend setting aside approximately an hour.
