The Mary Rose is in the running to be crowned the top venue in the South East after making it into the final of the Venue and Business Tourism category. The award, run by Tourism South East, highlights outstanding destinations in the region for conferences, business functions, banqueting, and weddings.

The venue, at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, is one of four finalists in the category.

The events team will be heading to the glittering awards ceremony at the Grand Hotel Brighton on November 29 to learn whether they have won gold, silver or bronze.

Becky Ashton, Events Manager at the Mary Rose Museum, said: “The team are all very excited to be in the final of these highly-regarded awards.


“It’s great to be recognised for the work that we do to bring truly memorable events to people as they come close to Henry VIII’s flagship and are surrounded by her collection.

“Since the venue’s new-look experience opening last year we have had so many compliments about our three events spaces and we look forward to holding many more successful events.”
