An invitation to the History Society’s Heritage, Arts and Cultural Careers Fair

The University of Portsmouth History Society is holding its Heritage, Arts and Cultural Careers Fair at the Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on Wednesday 21 November 3-5pm.

This event has been organised by the History Society Committee for the last three years and offers students a fantastic opportunity to meet professionals from a variety of organisations. It aims to demonstrate the range of career paths open to students with an interest in Heritage, the Arts or Culture and is a perfect chance to network with people already working these sectors.

Some of this year’s exhibitors include Chichester Festival Theatre, Historic England, Dinosaur Isle and the National Museum of the Royal Navy’s “Digging Deep: HMS Invincible 1744” project.

The History Soiciety Committee, made up of 6 second- and third-year History students,  have worked closely with The Mary Rose Museum and the History team at Portsmouth University to produce an event that offers something for everyone. This event is open to students (and staff) at all levels and has even been opened to local sixth forms and colleges this year.

If you’re not directly looking for a job, this event still has something for you. Lots of the exhibitors have voluntary opportunities to get involved with, such as Portsmouth Guildhall’s “Remembering the Guildhall”. These experiences are a great way to work with the local community and gain new experience for your CV.

Free tickets for this event can be booked at These tickets will also entitle the holder to explore the Mary Rose Museum for free for the afternoon!
