Postal Museum, London - Friday 1st December 2017 6.00pm - 9.00pm

We are delighted to celebrate ‘Antarctica Day’ at the Postal Museum in London. This is a fascinating venue and home to a wonderful exhibition which explores the surprising history of one of the greatest British inventions, the post!
Our guest speaker is Dame Jane Francis, Director of the British Antarctic Survey, who alongside UKAHT’s Chair Ian Rushby and Chief Executive Camilla Nichol will update you on our conservation work carried out at Horseshoe and the upcoming work to be carried out at Stonington. The Postal Museum will deliver an informative, engaging talk on the history of the Post Office.

We will be holding a silent auction for:

  1. A framed Union flag which was flown at Horseshoe Base Y this year whilst the Conversation Team were based there. The flag is tastefully mounted on a white background and framed in black wood (the frame is approx. 180 x 110cm). This is a truly unique memento and is part of Base Y’s history of conservation.
  2. A framed sheet of Base Y, Horseshoe Bay £3 stamps
  3. A framed sheet of Base E, Stonington Island 25p stamps
  4. Four tickets to the Mail Rail ride and exhibitions

This event is open to everyone and tickets cost £10 per person. On booking, you will receive notification on how to make your pledge for an auction item. Book your place...
