Second Annual Shipyard Social

28 August 2018 – The Collingwood Museum is pleased to announce that the second annual Shipyard Social will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018, after a successful inaugural year in 2017. 
 
Last year’s event saw more than 40 former shipyards workers and more than 200 guests in total, join Museum Staff and community members for a fun afternoon dedicated to celebrating our community’s heritage.
 
This year be sure to join the excitement and reminisce about the days of the Collingwood Shipyards. You will practically hear the splash of the ships sliding into the harbour!
