Cargo (Exhibition)

Bringing to life Poole’s maritime heritage of The Great Quay.

Watch this immersive show start on the quay side, as the ‘The Queen Galadriel’ ship sails into port and a crew disembark celebrating millennia of goods that have travelled the seas.

Unloading their unusual interactive ‘cargo’, the crew dance, sing, and move in procession sharing stories from above and below the flowing waters, revealing wisdom and heritage of maritime life along the way.

Cargo is a part of the Poole Maritime Festival and the European Maritime Day.

The Cargo exhibition will provide an ongoing opportunity to engage with the project within the setting of Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts. A specially constructed exhibition space will be created on the 1st floor of Lighthouse for you to come and experience how this project was made and the maritime heritage behind it’s inspiration.

A feature performance and talk with the artists will launch the exhibition at Lighthouse Poole. This is an unique event with limited tickets available.
