A NIGHT AT SEA

The Independent Culture
The Golden Hinde is a full-sized floating replica of Sir Francis Drake's famous 16th-century galleon, now permanently moored beside the River Thames at Southwark, near the new Globe Theatre.

The original Golden Hinde was the first English ship to circimnavigate the globe, doing so between 1577 and 1580.

Regularly throughout the year, the Golden Hinde holds living-history days for parents and children. Dressed in Elizabethan sailor's clothing, guests act out the roles of officers and seamen while the Golden Hinde's crew regales them with tales of adventure.

We have 10 vouchers on offer, each allowing one parent and a child to spend a special living-history night on board the ship, reliving the age of daring sea dogs. For a chance to win one, answer this question: Who was Queen of England when Sir Francis Drake made his successful circumnavigation of the globe?

Send your answers on a postcard, by 29 Aug, to: The Eye/Golden Hinde Offer, St Mary Overie Dock, Cathedral St, London SE1 9DG

The first 10 correct entries pulled from the postbag will each win a night on the Golden Hinde. Vouchers can be used until 30 Aug 1998.

The next four living history dates are: 20 Sept, 18 Oct, 15 Nov and 13 Dec.
