Overnight living history - KS2

Take over the Golden Hinde for a whole night as you and your group become the crew of The Golden Hinde and experience life as a 16th Century Sailor through fully immersive role-play.

Dressed in Elizabethan Costume, three colourful characters from the ship’s history will guide you about the ship and teach you the skills required to sail on a galleon. With lurid tales of leeches and limb removal from the grisly Barber Surgeon, lightning-quick gun drills with the excitable Gunner and mastery of the navigational arts with the ship’s Master, Overnight Living Histories are full of excitement and rich with learning opportunities.

As night falls, feast together in the hold on stew and grog, swap battle stories and prepare to bunker down in authentic sleeping quarters on the Hinde’s gun deck.

Avast, and get ready for an immersive historical experience like no other!
