Join the History Gang

Join Our History Gang!

It’s an exciting, creative group for 8–12 year olds at the Weald & Downland Living Museum. We meet for a half-day on a Saturday once a month. Join us today!


A half-day Saturday once a month (see details below).


Within the historic houses of our Museum.

Who is it for?

It’s for 8–12 year olds. The group will be friendly, informal and fun, with a small team of Museum leaders who will be there every session too. We’ll expect everyone to get along and help each other – there will be lots to do each time!

What will they do?

Lots of different indoor and outdoor activities! Craft activities, helping with a rural life weekend, the ‘worst jobs’ in history, calligraphy, natural navigation/survival skills, foal watch, music, Olympics/games day, library team day, and much more…

There is also an optional overnight camp each August.
