Shipyard Social - Virtual Edition 

Saturday, September 12 marked the 34th anniversary of the Collingwood Shipyards' closure and would have been the date for the annual Shipyard Social. 

To honour the event in a virtual format, Museum staff and Rogers tv have joined forces to ensure that the spirit and history of the shipyard is shared with the viewing public. The special feature will combine the Collingwood Museum's 1994 production of Collingwood Shipyard Trades alongside launch footage from Rogers' video archives. 

A full listing of air times for the month of September can be found at The special can also be watched free of charge on the website.
