Meet the Ragged Victorians.


For the May bank holiday weekend, the Ragged Victorians will be taking over the dockyard; an award winning living history group re-enacting the Victorian lower classes.

With a cast of 15 characters, they will be located on and around the ship, acting out fun scenes throughout the day. Visitors can expect to bump into a Victorian policeman, dock worker, fisherman’s wife, swindler, fish seller, char woman and even a rat catcher accompanied by his live rats!
