In More Detail…

To begin with, our interactive workshop lets your students get a taste of how crime and punishment was then, and how it is now. Firstly, we will send our executioner to come and tell you all about his life. Also, to add to the experience, they will bring along with them a selection of real working artefacts, made especially for our workshops (including weaponry and Tudor torture devices).

Next, the students explore crime and punishment through games, exercises and activities in groups. There are plenty of props to play with and there may even be a call for some acting! There will be a chance to recreate some of the historical punishments in a safe environment. By the way, we will also be on the hunt for a witch among the group!

We have designed this workshop especially to fit around your programme of study. We regularly get teachers asking us to tailor our workshops. If you need us to focus on select era’s or texts that you have planned for your students to study, let us know and we will adapt our workshops where possible.

Therefore, why not book our workshop and let us give you a real look at the judicial system of our country!

Group Size

Up to 90 children (3 classes) can take part in a full days workshop. For large groups we will need to split the day up slightly.


A big hall is ideal for large groups. However quite often we can fit into one or more classrooms dependent on the group size.
