Tall Ship Glenlee celebrates reopening with its annual Christmas fair

leave a comment »

The Tall Ship Glenlee is preparing to celebrate her reopening with a Christmas Fair. The Tall Ship will lower her gangways to the public this weekend, 27th and 28th of November, for the first time since her three-month renovation.

It’ll be your first opportunity to see the renovated ship. The recent work includes a new education space, the expansion of the rear deckhouse and new toilet facilities.

Visitors this weekend will also be able to take part in the Glenlee’s annual Christmas Gift Fair, with stalls selling Christmas gifts, hand-made cards and decorations, jewellery, ceramics, stocking fillers and luxury items. There’ll also be a special visit from Santa. The weekend event runs from 11am until 4pm, both days, and entry is free.

The Glenlee will remain open until February 2011, when she’ll be prepared for her short move downstream to her new home outside the Riverside Musuem.
