This session has been designed to support the study of Victorian childhood.

The children have the opportunity to dress in replica costume, and led by a costumed session leader they explore some of the types of work that Victorian Children would have done. They will also investigate real objects from the Victorian period.

 

Fantastic presenters, very authentic!
