Coinciding with the 102nd anniversary of the Battle of Jutland – the greatest naval engagement of the First World War – HMS Caroline is set to be the scene once again of maritime drama in the form of local production ‘Through the Eyes of a Boy.’
From 5pm on Saturday 2nd June, transport yourself back in time as you follow local drama company Belvoir Players around the ship as they retell the fascinating true story of boy telegraphist William Crick who served on HMS Caroline during the First World War.
Discover what like was like on board, witness the highs and lows of life at sea, the sorrow following the Battle of Jutland and the camaraderie of men living together amidst the uncertainty of war.
‘Through the Eyes of a Boy’ is an exciting theatre performance with a difference. These historic performances run through the evening and begin every hour from 5pm, with the last show starting at 8pm.
HMS Caroline’s Curator Victoria Millar says: “This is a truly exciting performance! It is a fantastic opportunity for the public to explore HMS Caroline – the sole survivor of the Battle of Jutland in 1916. This event offers a unique way to experience first-hand accounts from some of the sailors who served on board during a perilous time.”
