Book a speaker

Book one of our dedicated volunteers (see list of areas covered below) to visit your group and present on the history of this beloved Tudor warship. Alternatively, we can hold meetings online if your area is not covered.

Our speakers will bring PowerPoint presentations but we ask for the venue to provide a laptop, projector and screen.

Please be aware that a donation to the Mary Rose Trust will be requested (minimum £50.00) and, in addition, for the speaker’s travelling expenses to be reimbursed.

To book a Mary Rose Information Group (MRIG) speaker for your event, simply contact us at [email protected].

If you have any queries or would like more information about our scheme, please phone 02392 750521 extension 2203. Please note we cannot confirm a speaker’s availability over the phone as we need to send them all the details about your booking first.
