Home The QE2 Story’s Event Group is organising a fabulous conference at Clydebank Town Hall for you to celebrate 50 years since QE2’s launch at John Brown’s Shipyard, Clydebank. Friday, 22nd September 2017 is an important date for QE2 Story members, maritime enthusiasts and members of the public who want to celebrate QE2’s 50 years. The conference is of significant importance in the 2017 Calendar of Maritime Events. The event is for ticket holders only and is now sold out. We chose Friday 22 September 2017, rather than the actual date of QE2’s launch so that delegates can make a weekend of it. A special boat trip is organised for Saturday.
