Docks Heritage Weekend 4th-5th October

Don’t forget this weekend is Docks Heritage Weekend at M Shed!

Featuring vintage commercial vehicles on display (Including the museum’s own Bristol 8-wheel lorry), both steam and electric cranes in use unloading cargo from ship to shore, and the rare sight of the working electric capstans being used to shunt wagons on the quayside.

See the quayside come to life with dramatic re-enactments by Show of Strength theatre company.

Plus, see the amazing city of Briswool in all its woolly splendour.

The newly-outshopped MOGO van will also be on display, and the Tug John King will be giving rides around the harbour.

Lots to see and do, it should be a cracking weekend!
