Travel back in time through 1,000 years of history at a special time travel day organised by the National Archive in Kew.

The Time Travel Club will be held on 30 September 2017 and is suitable for children aged between three and eleven, accompanied by parents. Take part in interactive performances with the clowns Shake and Speare to discover the life of William Shakespeare, and join in with learning sessions on topics including:

  • Wartime espionage
  • Child criminals
  • Medieval treasure chests

Tickets are £8 per child. To book, visit the event website

Notes: Accompanying grownups are responsible for supervising children and must remain with them at all times during the event. Some activities (such as performances and learning sessions) have limited capacity and should be booked in advance; other activities are on a first come, first served basis throughout the day.
