‘Visit Derry’ in the city centre will be hosting a Maritime Roadshow this weekend.
Derry’s rich maritime heritage will be explored through original objects and photographs from the Museum Collection.
Among the themes will be emigration, the Second World War and maritime culture.
The event will run from 12pm to 3pm on Saturday at the Foyle Street visitor information centre.
Catherine Crawley, Visitor Services Officer, said the event was free and open to everyone.
Ms Crawley said: “We would like to encourage local citizens and groups on the day, during what will prove to be a fantastic event.”
‘Visit Derry’ will also be getting into the Christmas spirit with great competition prizes thanks to the kindness of local members.
A spokeswoman said: “How would you like to win two nights Bed & Breakfast for two people in the Everglades 4-Star Hastings Hotel? Or get your skates on with two free tickets to Legenderry on Ice in the Christmas Village.
“There are also two meals in Nando’s up for grabs or, if you want to go further afield, the Ulster American Folk Park are offering free tickets to their Days of Christmas Past event from 6th to 21st December.
“You can enter the competition when you call in or visit the website or
