Cunard’s Three Queens to meet on the River Mersey, watch live on Monday

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

cunard logoCunard’s three Queens, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, will gather in the company’s ‘spiritual home’ of Liverpool to mark its 175th anniversary on Monday, 25 May. Those who cannot attend but are interested in viewing this historic moment can view a live satellite feed, from 12:30-14:00 pm (GMT)

At midday on 25 May, Cunard’s current fleet will become the largest ships ever to sail in formation on the Mersey when all three Queens perform a meticulously planned series of manoeuvres to mark the company’s 175th anniversary and to salute Liverpool, its spiritual home, where the company began in 1840. The ships will perform a ‘river dance’ against the backdrop of Liverpool’s Three Graces, a world heritage site which includes the Cunard Building, the company’s headquarters from 1916-1967. Hundreds of thousands of spectators are expected to gather on both sides of the river to watch.

There will be a 90 minute programme of live helicopter footage of the Three Queens sailing in formation, live and pre-recorded interviews from the previous day's build-up and live crowd reaction. The programme will be streamed live via http://live.cunard.com/
