Dockyard rewards NHS and Emergency Services with exclusive opening and free tickets

Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is opening the gates to The Historic Dockyard
Chatham for free, from Wednesday, July 22 until Friday, July 24 exclusively for
Blue Light Card holders.

The Historic Dockyard and its buildings played a key role in defending the country
throughout history with some of the world’s most famous ships, including HMS
Victory, starting life in Chatham. The Trust believes it is only fitting to show its
appreciation to the modern day defenders and heroes that have supported the
country through the current COVID-19 crisis.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham closed to visitors on Wednesday, March 18 and in
the absence of being able to let visitors through the gates, the Trust lit its historic
buildings blue and hung banners of support for the NHS. With restrictions now
easing, the Trust is working towards a public re-opening of the visitor attraction on
Saturday, July 25.

As a thank you to all Blue Light services, the Trust will be opening especially for
Blue Light Card holders on three exclusive days prior to the public re-opening.

A limited number of free tickets will available each day for Wednesday, July 22;
Thursday, July 23; and Friday, July 24 2020. All tickets MUST be booked in
advance via The Historic Dockyard’s website.
