What Was it Like to Live in the 16th Century?

Named after the iconic Tudor Rose, The Rose Theatre was built in 1587 on Bankside in London. As it was erected in honour of Elizabeth I, it only seems fitting that there should be an educational programme all about the mighty Virgin Queen. After being awarded a grant by The United St Saviour's Charity, the Trust has developed a series called Tudors And Elizabethans Revealed, in which children can learn all about Tudor life while enjoying fun interactive activities.

The programmed is inked to the key stage two syllabus, so is perfect for kids between 7-11 years old. Each hour long session is between either 10am-11am or 11am-12pm. It is 3 per child, but if you live in North Southwark or Bermondsey then they can join in for free.
