Historic England 

In March 2023, Lloyd's Register Foundation approved a grant with Historic England to hold a pop up exhibition on Women in Shipbuilding in north east England.

The exhibition brought together photographs of women in shipbuilding and marine engineering in north east England in the First World War.

The exhibition will be on display at The Common Room, Neville Hall, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE between the 12th February and 6th March 2024.
