Primary History Workshop - Tudor (Ages 7 to 11)

Friday 19th August 9.00am till 11.45am

Two Families embroiled in war!
At a time when armies fought over who would be the true ruler of England, they brought together
huge armies of armoured warriors.

Head back over 500 years to 1485 where Richard III is being challenged by Henry Tudor for the crown
of England. Who will win this savage battle? How will this impact the future of England?

Join Adam and James from Primary History workshops for a child friendly workshop. If your child is
between 7 and 11 years old, sign them up for a crash course on Tudor warfare.
While your children have the opportunity to wear suits of armour, wield weapons and wage war, sit
back and relax in the Stick Fig or book yourself on a tour of Harvington Hall. Give yourself a break
and let us entertain your kids during the holiday.
