For one day only, top Canterbury attractions have come together to create the ultimate learning experience! The Canterbury Tales, Westgate Towers, St Augustine’s Abbey, Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, Canterbury Christchurch University and Whitefriars Shopping Centre are working in partnership to deliver a very special history experience for pupils aged between 7 and 11 years.
The day of activities, for Key Stage 2 classes, will bring history to life through a series of workshops, tours and challenges all themed around the medieval city. Students will hear historical stories, try their hands at medieval-inspired crafts, discover some of the city’s most ancient buildings and learn about archaeology and conservation. Costumed tour guides from The Canterbury Tales will be directing groups from venue to venue and Whitefriars Shopping Centre will create a central hub for all schools to use as a meeting point and a lunch area.
The education day will take place on Thursday 20th September 2018. The whole day will cost £8 per child and teachers go free. For more information or to book, teachers can contact Chloe Ward, Marketing Manager at The Canterbury Tales on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01227 696 002.
