In comes Daring and out comes a Blog

So it’s about time we let you know a bit more about what is going on behind the scenes here at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Our plan is to take it in turns updating you with news, offering you a bit of an insight into the different perspectives and roles we have here. Even better than that, if there is someone particular that you want to hear from then just leave your comments below.

So what an honour, I am first up. My name is Pete Martin and I am Marketing and Events Assistant. I started at PHD in July and am here on a years’ placement. I am twenty years old and studying Marketing, Advertising and PR at Birmingham City University - quite a mouth-full of a course!

As always we’re all really busy here working on various projects and doing our best to better Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Having welcomed the Royal Navy’s newest and frankly quite spectacular ship, HMS Daring (from a very sneaky prime position on board Warrior) and fought through the snow whilst resisting the temptation of a lunch time snow ball fight, I am now working on two small scale events at the moment.

The first one is Love Portsmouth, this is a city wide event organised by the council. It’s going on all across Portsmouth at various attractions and we are one of them on the 14th Feb! We’ll be dishing out poetry on Valentines Day as well as chalk of which we are encouraging people to draw their well wishing messages all over the floor! This is FREE so come along, it’ll be good fun!

This is a poster for the event:

The next event I have recently been working on is our Easter Egg Trail that we are having on Easter Sunday which is the 12th April this year! This event is free with a valid ticket on site so again come along, all ages welcome and you can get some chocolate out of it!!

There are some of the posters below:

Which one do you prefer?

There are some pictures from me, now how about I get some from you? We also have a Flickr group that has loads of really smart photos on around Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. We run a competition through this so get snapping and you can win some FREE tickets! To view our Flickr Page, go here:

So that is a bit of what I have been doing over the last few days, keep tracking the Blog for the next instalment!

Leave your comments and let us know what you think, it’s always good to hear from you.
