The Dorset Branch of the World Ship Society meets on the second Saturday afternoon of the month between September and May at The Centre - Ferndown in East Dorset, 2.15pm for a 2.30pm start. All meetings are now “hybrid” sharing our Dorset venue event with a wider member community via Zoom and giving local members the choice between getting together or enjoying the meeting at home. 

Our nine meetings per year have been widely acknowledged as informative and well presented, attracting popular and respected speakers from the local, national and international ships, shipping and maritime history scene. Visitors to our branch are always welcome ~ in person or via Zoom ~ please get in touch. Initial invitations come with no obligation and we hope you enjoy the afternoon. Ongoing participants are encouraged to become Branch Members ~ for only £20 a year. 

For details of our future events programme please see … and do contact us. Hybrid meetings now allow us to welcome you wherever you are in the world! Email us via or to find out more see
