Sea Life Roadshow

The Sea Life Roadshow was held at Buckland Community Centre in Portsmouth, led by the National Museum of the Royal Navy alongside a host of local museums and other organisations.

20th February 2010 - 28th February 2010

School pupils from Flying Bull Primary School, Charles Dickens Junior School and Corpus Christi RC Primary School created ‘Soul Sails’ with local artist Debbie Dodsworth as part of a schools art project. Each sail was made up of several unique panels, each designed and printed by a child and including patterns and shapes they chose during a visit to the Dockyard.

Mary Kinoulty, Head of Learning for the Mary Rose Museum said, "It was a great opportunity to meet families who do not usually visit the dockyard. The range of activities on offer meant that there was something for everyone to enjoy. Let’s hope that this is the first of many such events."

Over 350 people visited the roadshow and had the opportunity to handle fascinating objects, try on clothes, create their own Nelson hats & medals, and make their own mini ships.  Families were entertained by salty sea tales.
