The Ocean Liner Society hosts lectures from visiting specialists as well as staging the premier Ship Show in Britain in central London each autumn, an event which is getting bigger each year. The 1998 show is scheduled for 24 October at Westminster Central Hall, Storeys Gate (opposite Westminster Abbey)
Some members specialise in more artistic details such as the design of silverware, crockery, menus, ship postcards, paintings or the interior design of the ships themselves.
There are monthly talks or discussions on shipping topics with hot ocean liner and cruise ship news. These are held in London every month except August on the third Tuesday of the month at 7.00 p.m. in the upstairs room of the New Savoy Tavern, Savoy Street. (The road that runs between the Strand and the Queen Mary on the Embankment - Strand end)
