Join us after-hours at the National Maritime Museum for an atmospheric storytelling experience from award-winning theatre makers SPECIFIQ

Enter Quarantine...

Explore the Museum after hours and discover the unsettling history of maritime quarantine in this brand new immersive experience.

Feel the tension rise as the quarantine zone closes in around you, witness sinister accounts of plagues and pestilence, and ultimately test your own morals with a real-world quarantine scenario.
Audiences are invited to enjoy a free tot of rum before the show begins - for purely medicinal purposes, of course.
Limited capacity - book early to avoid missing out!
