About the event

Inspirational hero… Flawed maverick… Rebel.

Nelson – The Sailors’ Story at The Square Tower.

Amidst Trafalgar’s shot, smoke and din, the crew of the Victory strive to destroy the Combined Fleet of France and Spain. Below the column in Trafalgar Square, a homeless Falklands veteran shivers in the cold – above, Nelson’s thoughts on the world – past and present.

Following performances across the UK (including the hold of the Cutty Sark), the USA and Australia.
