Talks to Societies

We have a team of volunteer presenters who can come to your club or society to offer a talk. We share stories, footage and images of The Danny in her past life as the Chairman’s Launch playing host to the rich and famous from all over the world in the 1930’s, as well as information on the steam ship’s engines and stories of her working life on the Manchester Ship Canal. We also give an insight into the work needed to save the ship and becoming a new tourist attraction along The North West Waterways.

We offer two talks focused on shipping history & our unique steam ship called The Daniel Adamson.You can book one, or both of the talks, which will be given by our volunteer speakers aimed at societies and groups. We will travel across the North West and further to give talks. Our main talk is on The 1903 Daniel Adamson Steam Ship, which was saved from being scrapped by volunteers, who now crew the cruising ship which boats beautiful Art Deco interiors which have a fascinating history. The ship is listed as 15th on the Register of National Historic Ships and our speakers are part of the volunteer team and can talk personally about the story of the ship’s restoration. We also offer a talk on the building of the Manchester Ship Canal with lots of original images.
