Volunteers Needed for WW1 Project

Do you have an interest in the First World War?


Do you like learning about theatre and cultural history?


Would you like to be part of a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) research project that looks at the history of the Kings Theatre during the First World War?


If so, then here is a chance to be part of an exciting new research project run by Katrina Henderson Learning and Community Engagement Officer at the Kings Theatre with the support and guidance of University of Portsmouth and University of Kent. The project aims to look at the social context and the role of the theatre prior to and during the First World War.
The Kings Theatre are currently looking for members of the public who would like to get involved.


As a volunteer you would have to commit to a minimum of 1 day a week over the period of the project, approx. 4 months.


As part of the research team you will receive specialist training in how to request manuscripts, correct object handling, how to analyse them for relevant data, and how to record information that you collate. This would be an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a career in archives and research or for opportunities to volunteer in this sector.
Training Dates:

- Saturday 4th February 10am- 4pm


No prior experience is needed. For more information or to apply to take part in the project please email a completed short application form to Katrina.henderson@kingsportsmouth.co.uk by Wednesday 1st February 2017
