The QE2 Story has chartered the Clyde Clipper for a special sail down the River Clyde from the Riverside Museum to the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard and Titan Crane. More information on the itinerary and how to book tickets on the Saturday event page.
I was really pleased to see that the QE2 Story are organising a one off event on Saturday 23 September, the day after the QE2 50 year conference.
This is a unique opportunity to sail from the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, to the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard at Clydebank, with the option to go up to the top of the Titan Crane, before the return journey up the Clyde.
You can read more details on the Saturday Events page where you will be able to purchase tickets from Thursday 16 March
I was pleased to see the new QE2 50 year badge page that has been added to the website.
Buying this special edition QE2 badge has been made even easier. Just follow the link to the QE2 Story shop page and buy now.
We are pleased that Cruise Capital are supporting the event by promoting the event on their website and through social media.
Jordan Bailey, Travel Journalist, has written an article “Remembering QE2: 50 years since the Queen of the seas was launched”
Good article that highlights QE2’s anniversary and the QE2 Story conference planned for 22 September in Clydebank, which I hope you can attend. Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the Tickets page
I hope you will also celebrate QE2’s anniversary by buying the special edition QE2 50 year badge from the QE2 Story shop

Celebrate the QE2’s 50th Anniversary (1967 – 2017) by wearing The QE2 Story’s special edition pin badge. The logo design by Marc Antoine will feature at the conference in September. The badge measures 16 x 28mm and will only be available in 2017. Stocks are limited so visit the QE2 Story shop where you can buy this piece of QE2 memorabilia.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the sponsors who have come forward so far to support our event, which is very much appreciated. Some have provided support, promoting the conference or providing services such as designing the conference logo. Others have offered funds that are helping us provide an event that you will enjoy. These contribute to the cost of the venue, catering, speaker accomodation and everything else that we need to pay to make the event come together. You can see our sponsors listed on our Sponsors page. Please click through to visit their websites to support them as well.
A member of the QE2 Story forum asked a question about Scotland’s weather. “What is the high, low and average temperature and weather conditions for September in Glasgow and Clydebank . It would help in packing the correct clothing and footwear for people coming from far afield.” Difficult to predict the weather, especially in Scotland, where we can have four seasons on the one day. However, I have added a couple of links to websites with information on Scotland’s climate on the FAQ‘s page.
What a fantastic response we have had to the sale of the tickets since booking opened on Saturday. Go to the ticket page and purchase your ticket, to ensure you secure your place at this not to be missed conference, to celebrate QE2’s 50 years.
You can purchase your ticket by going to the ticket page and clicking on the button to buy your tickets. Like the laying of the QE2’s keel there was a slight technical glitch this morning, which was quickly resolved. The link to the ticket website is open and tickets are selling well.
