We Visit You
If you can’t come to us, don’t worry. We’ll come to you! We have a number of programmes designed to inspire people across the country about the Mary Rose.
The Mary Rose Trust have an experienced group of Volunteer Speakers in various parts of the country who are able to visit groups (U3A, Probus, WI, History Societies etc) to give talks.
We have speakers in or near the following areas (subject to availability) —
Berkshire (Sonnington-on-Thames), Buckinghamshire (Beaconsfield), Cambridgeshire (Cambridge), Cumbria (Milnthorpe), East Riding of Yorkshire (Goole), East Sussex (Pevensey), Essex (Billericay), Hampshire (Basingstoke, Chichester, Portsmouth, Romsey, Southampton, Waterlooville, Winchester), Kent (Ashford, Rochester), London (Isleworth), Nottinghamshire (Nottingham), Oxfordshire (Banbury, Oxford, Wantage), Somerset (Ilminster), South Yorkshire (Sheffield), Suffolk (Ipswich, Woodbridge), Warwickshire (Leamington Spa), West Midlands (Birmnigham), West Sussex (Petworth, Worthing), Wiltshire (Salisbury)
Our speakers do travel so if you don’t see a location near you listed, get in touch and we can let you know if someone would be able to come to you. Please be aware that a donation to the Mary Rose Trust will be requested and, in addition, for the speaker’s travelling expenses to be reimbursed.

Community Visits to Special Needs groups
Mixing history with entertainment, each special needs group visit is all about getting involved and having fun. Stroke groups, Mencap, Alzheimer’s Society, Hospices, Age UK and local authority day centres all receive visits from the Trust.
Sessions include a talk, plus the chance to handle real and replica artefacts from the ship. Sessions are designed to promote interest and discussion and engage members with everyday life on a Tudor ship.
Visits are free of charge to groups in Portsmouth and across Hampshire. However, we would be grateful for any donations to support our work. For special needs groups further afield we do ask for contributions towards travel costs.
Whatever the age range or the size of your community group, we can tailor a session to meet your needs. If you would like to find out more, please contact email@example.com or +44(0) 2392 812931
