Tudor Workshops

Tudor Workshops are a fantastic way to engage educational groups in the historical Tudor period. Tudor Workshops take school groups on an adventure to the past, where students will have the opportunity to discover a deeply fascinating era. The English Reformation, the Government of Henry VIII, and Sir Francis Drake’s first voyage to the West Indies – these are just some of the historical events that occurred during the Tudor period. 

There is a wide selection of Tudor Workshops available for any classes currently studying this historical era. One such workshop provider is Tudor World, which is located in Stratford upon Avon – a town that is famous for its connections with the Tudor author William Shakespeare. A workshop from Tudor World will provide school groups with a historically accurate depiction of Tudor life. From plague to punishment, everything is included! The Shakespeare Family Homes is another Tudor Workshop operator which provides students with a variety of informative and inspiring workshops that are focused on the life of William Shakespeare. Whether your KS1 class have just begun their Tudor journey, or your GCSE students want a more in-depth examination of the Tudor period, there is a Tudor Workshop for every pupil.
