Home The QE2 Story’s Event Group organised a fabulous conference at Clydebank Town Hall to celebrate 50 years since QE2’s launch at John Brown’s Shipyard, Clydebank. Friday, 22nd September 2017 was an important date for QE2 Story members, maritime enthusiasts and members of the public who wanted to celebrate QE2’s 50 years. The conference was of significant importance in the 2017 calendar of maritime events. The event was a sell out months before the day. We chose Friday 22 September 2017, rather than the actual date of QE2’s launch so that delegates could make a weekend of it. A special boat trip was organised for Saturday.
