The workshop runs from 9.45am to 2pm, Monday to Friday during term-time.

Sessions are run in a specially recreated Victorian classroom facility, where children dress in Victorian costume and follow a Victorian-style role play recreation.

The workshop activities include:

  • Recitation
  • Physical drill
  • Object lesson/needlework
  • Copperplate handwriting.
     

At 12.30pm, the children have half an hour for lunch when they can take the Victorian toys up to the castle grounds for outdoor play.

At 1pm, they will visit the museum's Victorian galleries which include Victorian toys and items of domestic life and answer questions on a worksheet. The sessions have been designed by, and are run by, qualified teachers.

Price: £6.80 per child with a minimum charge of £170. An inset session and a Teacher's pack are included.
