Trafalgar 200th Anniversary Events

Coming together to present a year long series of events and festivals during 2005, on the theme of Britain and the sea, are the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, and VisitBritain, together with the Official Nelson Commemmorations Committee (ONCC), the National Trust, SeaVision UK, Trinity House and a large number of other national and local organisations, with the support of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

At the heart of the celebrations will be the Trafalgar Festival, a series of events to mark the bicentenary of Admiral Lord Nelson’s death and the Battle of Trafalgar, culminating in the Trafalgar Weekend 12-23 October 2005.

The whole programme of activities will take place under the brand SeaBritain 2005, which launched on October 21, 2003, at Trinity House by the National Maritime Museum, VisitBritain, and the ONCC in the presence of HRH The Duke Of Edinburgh, Patron of SeaBritain 2005.

VisitBritain will be adopting Britain’s inland waters, coastline and the sea as one of its primary tourism marketing themes - both domestic and international - for 2005 and beyond.
