Your class will be transported back in time to 1940, discovering what life was like as an evacuee. During your visit your class will learn all about the history of WW2, who took part, why we joined and what happened. The children will handle artefacts from the time and be taken inside an Anderson shelter to experience what it was like during the Blitz.
On arrival one of our tutors will welcome your group to the Centre and go through the schedule for the day, learning objectives and health and safety issues.
