Queen Mary 80th Anniversary Events

Showing 1 of 2

This Friday marks the 80th anniversary of Queen Mary’s maiden voyage. The great liner departed Southampton for New York on 27 May 1936.

Happily, Queen Mary is still very much with us. If you happen to find yourself in SoCal this Friday, you will be able to visit Queen Mary for free and enjoy some special activities.

The signature event will be the opening of a new art gallery featuring works by British prime minister and frequent Queen Mary passenger Sir Winston Churchill.

Additionally, a new hour-long documentary film, “Queen Mary: Greatest Ocean Liner,” a co-production of the BBC, BBC Four, the Smithsonian Channel, and Scottish Television Productions, will be screened in the Queen Mary’s theater during the anniversary weekend.
