Elizabethan England is an exciting but dangerous place - if you want to stay healthy, get educated, and move up in Tudor society you are going to need some help!
A rich, finely dressed Tudor lady, Alice, and her loyal steward Jack will spend the day with your class and help them learn how life was really lived in 16th century England.
How do you survive plague and illness? How do you enjoy yourself while managing to keep your head on your shoulders? What you must never, ever say about the Queen - and much more!
With authentic costume and numerous artefacts, Makers of History workshops involve the whole class in role-play, hands-on activities, games and drama to fully immerse children in Tudor ways, for the ordinary folk as well those at Court.
