Want to dress up in a Tudor replica costume? This lively session provides the unique opportunity for all the class to try on replica garments and discover the messages in the materials about status, wealth and life in Tudor England.
Take part in a Tudor clothing trail around the house, learn a popular court dance and investigate the connections and contrasts between the lives of the Tudors then and now through clothing.
Includes a ‘living timeline’ with your class taking on characters covering over 500 years of Temple Newsam’s history.
