Get Togethers & QE2 Events
Each year, we host get-togethers to share our QE2
stories in person. These can be on board one
of the current
Cunard ships, or at related maritime events. Our first
was in 2009, and our biggest was the
QE2 50th Anniversary Event in Clydebank in 2017.
We have had trips on the Paddle Steamer Waverley, a visit to the QE2's shipyard including a trip up the famous Titan Crane and we visited the Tall Ships Race in Greenock. We've also been in Southampton and on board the current Cunarders. More details of past and future events, and how to join in, on the forum.
