The Ghost of Acorn

29th April - 20th July

Free
Gret image of a building in the distance, water in front of it. Acorn Shipyard is written in bold lettering on the building.

In 2016, much of Acorn Shipyard in Rochester was destroyed by fire. Over the following year, Luna Zsigo and Neil Thorne captured thousands of photographs documenting the final chapter of its life. In 2023, a collection of their favourites were displayed at the Royal Engineers Museum in Gillingham.

Since then, some of the men who worked at the shipyard have been kind enough to share their experiences and photos of Acorn’s heyday. Luna and Neil will use this space to tell their stories and learn more about this important part of Medway’s history.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9am-5.30pm, Saturday 9am-12.30pm (closed Wednesday and Sunday).
