These sessions are brilliant for walk-in visitors and also for booked groups.

  • The Shakespearean Scribe. Write your own name with a quill pen – dare to ask if Shakespeare’s in town!

  • The Alehouse Wench. Be a low-life and learn to play authentic board games of the 1500s and 1600s in your hostelry.

  • The Georgian lady’s salon. Enjoy a dish of tay with Handel’s favourite soprano. Chit-chat about womanly things of the 1700s, while the gentlemen are in their coffee-house.
