University of Hull Outreach


MHSC OutreachThe MHSC’s outreach effort is designed to provide local communities in Hull with the opportunity to learn about, identify with and celebrate their city’s distinctive and significant maritime heritage. In so doing, our outreach work not only facilitates the engagement of Hull people with the educational resources of their local University, but also renders a heritage site – Blaydes House, the eighteenth-century merchant’s residence where the MHSC is based – accessible to a wide audience. We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the University of Hull Maritime History Trust for funding the post of Education and Outreach Officer. This position is held by Dr Robb Robinson, whose principal responsibilities are to cultivate volunteer groups, devise and deliver learning programmes, liaise with schools and organise public lectures and exhibitions.

For more information on the MHSC’s outreach activities, contact Dr Robb Robinson.
