In safe hands: the story of the Liverpool Pilots

Join exhibition curator Ben Whittaker for a 20 minute tour of the In safe hands: the story of the Liverpool Pilots exhibition.

Discover some of the fascinating stories about smuggling and piracy linked to the early pilot service in the age of sail.

Learn about how timing is everything to ensure the safe passage of cargo - and how we rely on ships being safely piloted to provide almost everything we use and consume in our daily lives.

This event is part of the In safe hands: Liverpool Pilots exhibition and our LightNight 2017 event series.
