On Monday 10th February the Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock, will be hosting a small exhibition on Henry Bell and his historic steamship, the P.S. Comet. The exhibition will until run until the evening of Wednesday 26th February, culminating in a drama detailing the life of Henry Bell, and his plans to bring steam powered travel the the Clyde. Tickets cost £10 Adult, £8 concessions and can be collected from the Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock.

The drama will also run on the afternoon of Wednesday 26th February, however this showing is exclusively for local schools, sponsored by Inverclyde Community Development Trust, and any schools wishing to obtain FREE tickets should contact our Heritage Development Coordinator, Kay Clark on kay.clark@trustregeneration.org.uk, or call Dutch Gable House on 724765. Tickets are limited, so act now to avoid disappointment.

If you're a keen subscriber to our blog you'll know that the team here at The Dutch Gable have a bit of a soft spot for the paddle steamer, having done a short series of posts which you can view HERE.

But that's not all!

Identity @ The Dutch Gable will be lending a few bits and bobs to the exhibition. So if you're one of the unfortunate few who have yet to see our Comet Animation, featuring pupils from St. Johns Primary School in Port Glasgow, or have not seen out P.S. Comet documentary, then we strongly encourage you to get along to the Beacon!
