Soap-balls, candles and tinder-boxes: Life in Georgian Richmond
- What was it like to live in Richmond during Georgian times?
- What did people do for fun before TV or video games?
This exciting, practical and interactive session takes place at Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal and will allow your students to answer these questions and many more by handling objects relating to society and culture in Georgian Richmond.
During the session, students will use their historical enquiry skills to learn about the past, try on some Georgian costumes and will even get to follow in the footsteps of Samuel Butler by standing on stage at the theatre.
This session is designed for Key Stage 1 and 2 children.
All of our sessions will be delivered by a member of our specialist Education Team.
