The Spring Arts Centre at Havant is the venue for the UK premiere of Nelson: A Sailor’s Story. The show comes to the venue today at 7.30pm.

Amid the shot, smoke and din of battle, a surgeon, a midshipman, a gunner and a powder monkey aboard HMS Victory strive to destroy the combined fleet of France and Spain.

Their fate and that of their country lies in the hands of one man – Horatio Nelson.

Fast forward in time, and for 200 years, Vice Admiral, the Right Honourable, the Viscount Nelson KB, has stood patiently on his column in Trafalgar Square.

He has watched the world and its many changes – both good and bad.

This one-man show by actor Nicholas Collett is a feat of ocean-going action, surprises and song.

The performance is followed by a post-show talk in the bar.

Tickets: £11.25-12.50. Call the box office on: (023) 9247 2700 or visit for more information.
