The UK PIN Gala Dinner will take place at the Merseyside Maritime Museum on Friday, 9th December, located on the Albert Dock next to the Arena and Convention Centre.
In 1839 the dock engineer Jesse Hartley (1780-1860) proposed the building of a radical new dock on the western side of Salthouse Dock - Albert Dock. It was the first in Liverpool to be designed with warehouses, which along with the latest hydraulic machinery would ease the unloading and onward movement of goods arriving from around the world.
In the late 1970s, thanks to the support of Merseyside County Council, work began on the creation of a dedicated maritime museum on the Liverpool waterfront: The museum we know today moved into block D of the completed Albert Dock Building in 1986.
The modern day Merseyside Maritime Museum is more than just a fantastic museum, it is also a treasure house of architectural and mechanical invention. Over the past 20 years collecting has continued and included a wide range of memorabilia relating to seafaring, sea travel and the port of Liverpool.
Work to revive Albert Dock began in 1982 and The Dock is now a major tourist attraction and home to many small shops, bars, flats, restaurants, hotels and other businesses. The International Slavery Museum,Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story are also based there.
The ticket price is £18 and includes a 3 course dinner, drinks and entertainment by a Beatles Tribute Band.
