We run two home education days every year here in Stratford-upon-Avon

Join us for our upcoming home education days featuring bespoke and interactive sessions at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Friday 7 July 2017

Rich Man, Poor Man

Suitable for ages 7 to 14

10.00am until 12.00pm

The Shakespeare Centre, Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6QW

Using clues from original documents and artefacts from our Collections, your child will become a history detective and solve the riddle about Thomas Lett’s life.

During the course of this bespoke session your child will:

  • Address and devise historically valid questions using a range of sources
  • Visit the strong room where original documents and artefacts are held
  • Enjoy a carousel of historically related activities such as writing with quill pens, making seals, finding out about the plague, identifying mystery objects from the past and shopping with 'old money'!
  • Handle real Elizabethan coins
  • Visit Shakespeare's Birthplace and Hall's Croft

Cost: £9.50 per child including any material used and visits to Shakespeare's Birthplace and Hall's Croft.*

We have been HE for one year and this is by far the best event we have ever done.
