Event Details
Our ever popular History Week is back! From Monday to Friday, there will be different eras moving through time up to the Twentieth Century, with reenactors on some days or the chance to immerse yourself in historical living on others.

On Monday, we will be joined by some real Romans (reeneactors, but don’t tell anyone!), so you can meet a Roman, learn about what life was like under the rule of the empire and even have a go at some military marching!

On Tuesday, you can book to take part in a Viking experience; children can dress up like a Viking and have their own rune symbol painted on their face to get into the Viking battle spirit. You can try some Viking food and play a game, all followed by a story of Viking mythology around the campfire!

On Wednesday, you can meet some Medieval ancestors and learn about what life was like before our modern, industrial world!

On Thursday, you can take part in a Victorian experience, where children can dress up like a Victorian, try their hand at washing chores or see if they would survive in a Victorian school room with a strict teacher! You can then try some food, play some games and hear a story from the time.

On Friday, you can learn about life in both the First and Second World Wars, see some of the weapons and hear about life on the home front.

The museum is free entry all year round. Monday’s Roman event in our lovely covered courtyard area is free to enter too and you don’t need to book on this day, but other events throughout the week need to be booked in advance.
