We are launching our new-look family programme with a taster day of activities for all the family! Join us and travel back through 1,000 years, exploring different periods in history and learning about real stories from the past.
Take part in our interactive performances with clowns Shake and Speare to discover the life and times of England’s best known playwright, or come along to a wide range of learning sessions throughout the day to find out more about wartime espionage, child criminals and medieval treasure chests. We’ll also have lots of drop-in activities to keep the whole family entertained.
Time Travellers will be given a passport on arrival and can collect stamps throughout the day for each activity they take part in. Activities are particularly suitable for children aged between three and eleven, although younger and older children are also welcome. Adults are responsible for supervising children and must remain with them at all times during the event. Some activities (such as performances and learning sessions) have limited capacity and should be booked in advance; other activities are on a first come, first served basis throughout the day.
