Speaker: Phil Magrath, Curator of Artillery, Royal Armouries 

Many trials were made, much ink was spilt, and a barrage of words spoken in the battle between William Armstrong and Joseph Whitworth for the acceptance into British service of their respective artillery systems. Discover who prevailed and how it happened. 

This talk will take place at Fort Nelson. The Visitor Centre will be open from 6.30pm. Light refreshments will be served afterwards and are included in your ticket price.

Tickets: £5
