Nautical bunting and LV21's light tower

LV21 lightship

We’re really excited to be joining in the nautical fun at YuleTIDE’10, an open weekend and craft fair onboard the stunning decommissioned light ship ‘LV21’ at Gillingham Pier this weekend.

LV21 is a 40 metre steel-hulled lightship, undergoing a transformation into an amazing floating arts venue. It recently won Best Heritage Project at the Medway Culture and Design Awards.

YuleTIDE’10 has Christmas shopping and free workshop activities suitable for all ages:

  • Buy beautiful handcrafted gifts and accessories including: sailor berets, ship hats, anchor and swallow necklaces, bunting decorations, cards, log books, prints, souvenir tea towel bags, deck chair pencil cases, toys and other quirky bits and bobs suitable for the modern day sailor or pirate girl.
  • Make free screen printed bunting for a gift or Christmas decoration, with the Seaside Sisters. Flags with xmas motifs, names or messages naughty or nice – we can even make them for you while you explore the ship.
  • Join radio wizard Colin Turner to learn the art of soldering and morse code
  • Follow a treasure trail to explore the vessel
  • Add your own seasonal paper boat to the growing fleet

Sat 18th & Sun 19th December
11am – 4pm
LV21 Lightship, Gillingham Pier, Pier Approach Rd, Kent, ME7 1RX
