History In Action
Step inside a naval ship of old or battle pirates in our lively drama and movement sessions on the third Sunday of each month.
Free drama sessions for families, aimed at children aged 5-10, but all ages are welcome. No need to book but there is limited availability so that social distancing can be maintained.
Come to the Visitor Centre to sign up on the day so that you can be directed round to the Mews Schoolroom. If the session you would like to attend is full, take a look around our beautiful grounds or grab a coffee before the next session.
