The setting for the evening will be on board HMS Warrior 1860 on the waterfront at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. HMS Warrior, Britain’s first iron-hulled armoured battleship, was launched in 1860 and was the pride of Queen Victoria’s fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful warship of her day and had a lasting influence on naval architecture and design.

The evening will provide a fantastic opportunity to explore this engineering marvel and experience life on board. Attending the event will be local dignitaries, members of the Institute, specially invited guests and the IHEEM head office team.
