NOTE: If we are working with one class for a full day, we can go into more depth with certain topics if you wish us to.

In More Detail…

Let us teach your students all about Guy Fawkes (‘Guido’ to his friends in Spanish) and his involvement in the Gunpowder Plot. From being recruited in Flanders to being the bomb specialist who was to lay wait and light the fuse.

The first thing the students must do is prove that they are to be trusted so that Guy Fawkes can talk to them in confidence. Then the students will go on an explorative journey and learn all about the fated plot and all the events that led up to November 5th.

Your students will get the chance to take part in some craft-making and recreate the themes of the story using costumes for a photoshoot. We aim to leave them with a lasting impression of one of the biggest revolts our country has seen!

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.
