The Mary Rose Live Waterfront Sessions

Published: 21st September 2018 09:43

Life on board the Mary Rose was not all war and weaponry - music and merriment were as important during long periods at sea.

Now the museum is hosting a Mary Rose Live Waterfront Session on Saturday 29th September to enjoy this fun tradition.

The event will include art and music workshops, as well as performances during the day, followed by an evening of live music, food and drink.

Local Ebru water artist, James Mouland will be running a workshop to create water transfer art. Rocksteady Music School will see visitors become part of their very own rock band! There will be a range of performances taking place in and around the museum, with poetry from Portsmouth’s poet laureate, Sam Cox and Morris Dancing from Mary Rose & Royal George Street Dancers.

The daytime activities will be followed by an exclusive evening event where visitors can experience the Mary Rose collection in an entirely different way.

The museum doors will reopen for guests to enjoy the galleries at 7pm with live music provided by Mayfield Records. There will also be a range of food and bars throughout the exhibition supported by local suppliers, including Southsea Brewing Company. 

James Rodliff, Visitor Operations Manager of the Mary Rose, says: “We are all really looking forward to the upcoming Mary Rose Live event. To be able to use this iconic venue as a backdrop to showcase local art, music, food and drink is a very exciting prospect. We hope to give our guests a different perspective on the collection and to enhance their experiences. This is intended to be the first of many collaborations between the museum and the wider arts and cultural sector in Portsmouth to deliver a new type of community engagement.”

Tickets cost £15 and are available from the website.
