Medway Queen Art and Photographic Exhibition

Every year the Medway Queen joins in with the national “Heritage Open Days” weekend and this year we are collaborating with Mid Kent College to mount an Art and Photographic exhibition on board the ship. Students are working on exhibits for the event and contributing to event planning and management. The entries should have a maritime theme but within that they can be any subject; shipping, nature, weather, recreation – you name it.

Entry is open to all with no charge for exhibiting your work but if it is sold a percentage of the sale price will go to the Medway Queen Preservation Society for restoration of the ship. Entries must be delivered to Gillingham Pier on Friday 8 September and the show is open to the public on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10.

Because the event is part of the Heritage Open Days weekend there is no admission charge to the ship or visitor centre but the gift and book shop will have high hopes of making sales and you can, of course, buy from the range of exhibits in the show.

Terms and conditions apply to entries in the exhibition so download the entry booking form at
