Regeneration of the Clock House and Ramsgate’s Maritime Museum

25 July @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£2.88

We return to the San Clu on July 25th and will welcome Rob Warren (Museum & Gallery Consultant on the Ramsgate Society Committee) and Lucia Tanner (Regeneration Project Officer at Thanet District Council) to bring us all up to date on what is happening on the Clock House and Maritime Museum: the building, the collection, the finances, the opportunities and the problems. It is your chance to catch up and also to raise any questions you may have.

To quote Rob Warren, Museum Curator and our advisor on the Ramsgate Society committee : “Museums are not full of old objects – museums are full of people and stories. And not just of a harbour or a town or an island, but of the culture, of the legacy, and of the world. The Clock House is brimming with such objects, revealing their invisible recordings to anyone who wants to discover them. The preservation of these objects is a critical first step towards returning our Maritime Museum to the town and in this talk I want to look at how we aim to rediscover those people and stories through the Collection Project taking place over the summer.”

He also keen to acknowledge the support he is receiving to keep the project moving: ‘There are two reasons why this is going well. One is the continuing support of TDC, demonstrating their desire to reinstate the Clock House as a museum at the heart of the town and community. But the real stars are the volunteers. A team of passionate and dedicated folks who come down to the harbour every day, rain or shine, and give their precious time, energy, and effort. Always with a smile and always happy to do whatever is needed.’

We will also be delighted to welcome Lucia Tanner who can set the scene from the TDC point of view regarding the importance of this project within the Levelling Up funds allocated to Ramsgate.

This is sure to be a very popular event and pre booking is essential at £2.88 a ticket for Society Members. Non members will be asked to make a voluntary donation of a further £3 on the door.

As usual, doors open at 6:30pm and the talk will start at 7pm and run for an hour including questions.
