Hidden Heroines - The Historic Dockyard Chatham

Win tickets to The Historic Dockyard Chatham and discover the untold stories of the extraordinary women who worked there in a brand new exhibition

Hidden Heroines: the untold stories of the women of the Dockyard is a new, temporary exhibition. From the women of the Spinning Rooms and Sail and Colour Loft, to tales of stowaways, women masquerading as men and the extraordinary women whose impact left a lasting legacy.

Hidden Heroines challenges the misconceptions and superstitions of women at sea, explores women’s place in war and highlights some colourful characters including Jane Austen’s sister-in-law, Fanny, and Zandra Bradley, the first female apprentice, whilst not forgetting those who continue to work at The Historic Dockyard Chatham to this day.

Brought to life in the No.1 Smithery gallery and through a supporting digital exhibition, Hidden Heroines brings together a fascinating collection of stories, objects and photographs for the first time.
