Description

Brian will give a talk on The Submarine Centre which was designed to honour the sacrifice, courage and innovation of the Royal Navys' submarine service past and present, which is timely as the entire fleet of Britains submarines have been relocated to near by HMSB Clyde in Faslane. Shortlisted for the ‘ Visitor Attraction Project of The Year’ category at the International AV Install Awards which will be announced soon. The centre, which is pioneering the use of immersive technologies (360 surround video and video mapping), is home to X51- Stickleback, the last of the famous X class submarines which were involved in some of the Royal Navy’s most daring and dangerous operations in WW11.

Speaker(s)

Semi-retired social entrepreneur Brian Keating, formerly an executive with Apple, had the idea of commemorating this by founding a submarine museum in Helensburgh. Having set up the Scottish Submarine Trust, he acquired the former St. Columba church complex in 2014.
