Museum Lates: ON WILDER SEAS with Nikki Marmery


Author Nikki Marmery’s historical novel imagines the journey of real-life enslaved African Maria, who joined Drake’s circumnavigation off the coast of Mexico in 1579.  Nikki will be reading from her novel, discussing her research, and signing copies of her book.

The Golden Hinde's Learning Officers, Pete Sayer and Alan Sharpington, will also be on hand as you explore the ship, telling the tale of the circumnavigation, discussing the life of the Elizabethan crew and looking up close at our authentic replica objects in handling sessions.

You’ll also be serenaded by a Tudor musician, with authentic melodies taking you back to an Elizabethan life at sea.  The bar will be open throughout the evening.

Date/ time: 
Thursday 21st October, 19:00 - 22:00.  Doors open at 19:00
