THE National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is hosting a one-day event commemorating the centenary of Captain Scott’s Antarctic expedition.

Visitors to the event on Saturday will have the chance to talk to members of the British Services Antarctic Expedition 2012 team, which recently returned from the frozen continent where explorer Robert Falcon Scott and his team perished in 1912.

There will be performances from Jake Wilson of his commemorative composition of All’s Well, a sledge and skis used during the 1912 expedition and the chance to have a go at becoming a Polar scientist in a science lab.

There will be the chance to watch Herbert Ponting’s film of the 1912 expedition, The Great White Silence.

The event at the National Museum of the Royal Navy is free to the public.
