Would you like to journey through time?

Pupils will uncover an archive box containing documents, objects and smells! Using the contents of the box as a starting point, professional storyteller and musician Richard Neville will take your pupils on an interactive journey through time. Pupils will have the opportunity to try on replica costume from the period as they become characters from the past. At the end of the session, they will have their photograph taken as a souvenir to take away with them.

Choose from the following periods: Tudors, Victorians, Second World War.
