  • Venue


Christmas 1966, and an explosion ripped a firestorm through the super-modern freezer stern trawler H308 St Finbarr. Ten died. A two-day battle to save the ship cost more lives before she went down off the coast of Newfoundland.

Brian W. Lavery, author of The Headscarf Revolutionaries that told of the 1968 Hull Triple Disaster, recounts the full drama of the St Finbarr in his new book, The Luckiest Thirteen. Parallel to dramatic sea scenes are heart-rending stories of Hull families at Christmas, who did not know if their loved ones were alive or dead. Experience the intense drama of life at sea, and in the families left behind. With special guests, and live music.
