THE events experienced by a mariner who has returned from a long sea voyage are depicted in the modern form of a play at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard tomorrow.

The famous tale – The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - will be performed throughout the day by Doorag Productions, on board HMS Victory.

It is renowned for being the longest major poem by English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and was written in 1797.

As well as watching the performance, you are encouraged to join in and dress up in something nostalgic from the dressing up box.

Performances last 20 minutes and take place at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm. See historicdockyard.co.uk
