March 17 2013 marks 75 years since HMS Belfast was first launched, in 1938. Ordered by the Admiralty in 1936, the ship is one of the last surviving WWII Royal Navy ships in the UK and activities and events over the weekend will celebrate her achievements. Lots of events for children are planned, including a ship's crest-making activity, a series of live radio demos and a chance to sit in the captain's chair.
