History Week is back this February Half Term! Come and explore the past from the Ancient World up to the Victorians, with hands on activity sessions and amazing reenactors.
From Tuesday to Friday we have activity sessions in our Learning Space exploring different eras:
Tuesday – Ancient Worlds
Wednesday – Roman Invasion
Thursday – The Vikings
Friday – The Victorians
Workshop times: 10.30-11.15, 11.30-12.15 & 1-1.45 pm
On Wednesday, we will also be joined for the day by Roman soldiers from the Ermine Guard reenactment group in our Courtyard area. Come and have a go at marching like a real Roman and learn about their lives.
Join us for our Roman Invasion workshop, and imagine yourself as a Roman emperor by creating your own coin and dressing up in a toga, then design your own Roman mosaic!
Tickets for sessions in the Learning Space cost £6 per child and can be purchased via Ticketsource or by calling or popping in to the museum. Pre-booking recommended. There is no cost for entry to the Courtyard area to meet the groups.
These sessions are most suitable for children of school age and their grown-ups, but are accessible to all ages and abilities with adult support. Accompanying adults do not need to purchase a separate ticket.
