Description

As part of the Eastside Arts Festival, PRONI is delighted to welcome Nigel Henderson to talk about the Workman Clark shipyard during the First World War.

This presentation marks the 100thanniversary of the Workman Clark war memorial which is now located at the Pumphouse in the Titanic Quarter. The presentation will provide a wide-ranging account of the involvement of the Workman Clark shipyard and its employees in the First World War.
The presentation will include biographies of men named on the memorial along with details on men from the shipyard who served and survived. The presentation will also cover details of the firm's contribution to the war effort in terms of shipbuilding, its financial support for the relatives of the men serving overseas and financial support for war fund appeals.
Nigel is currently working on a book about Workman Clark and its part in the Great War (both at home and overseas)
There will be a chance to visit the memorial after the talk.
This talk is part of the Eastside Arts Festival 2019 which takes place from 1-11 August.
