The Tudors

Experience life during the turbulent Tudor period…

In our Tudor programme, your children have been sent to Ufton Court by a Justice of the Peace in Berkshire, to investigate the ‘strange goings on’ at the residence of Lord and Lady Francis Perkins. There are rumours of strange goings on and secret Catholic things happening here. As local Petty Constables of the parish of Ufton Nervet, your children’s legal duty is to investigate these claims, find evidence of the claims and consider what might be happening here.

Our Tudor narrative will allow your children to experience life and culture, as it would have been at Ufton Court in the 1500s. Whether it be for three days or one, your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.

“It has been a really enjoyable trip for our children. The activities were hands on and engaging. At some points we really thought that we were back in Tudor times! Thank you so much – year 3 teacher at Gorse Ride, June 2018
