The Old Royal Naval College is holding a free Careers in Heritage Construction Day on Tuesday 19th June 2018.

Constructing our Past for our Future: Careers in Heritage Construction Day, aims to get young people interested in a number of careers in Heritage Construction, by giving them insight into what options are available in this field.


We have confirmed demonstrations, practical activities and/or information on the following trades: 

  • Ornamental plastering
  • Stonemasonry
  • Woodwork
  • Marbling
  • Gilding
  • (heritage) construction site management
  • Wallpapering
  • Electrical
  • Brickwork
  • Painting restoration

There is also a beanbag area with a documentary video about the cleaning of our famous Painted Hall, currently undergoing massive conservation. A conservator will be on hand to talk about the current 3-year cleaning/ conserving process and answer any questions.
