If you’re in London this weekend then why not pop along to the family festival at the Tower of London. Here are the details from Historic Royal Palaces:
Family festival at the Tower of London, May Bank Holiday weekend.
Saturday 24 – Monday 26 May 2014
Included in your admission ticket
“Bring your family to the Tower of London over the Bank Holiday weekend and immerse yourself in a living Tudor world. The court of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII in 1533 will be brought to life, and we’ll need your help to prepare for Anne’s upcoming coronation.
Meet us in the moat where you’ll be greeted by Tudor characters and assigned a mission. Follow this mission trail and complete interactive tasks to make Anne’s coronation a celebratory success.
Take part in Tudor cookery, craft and games in the Hands on History Zone. Step into the past and complete a Tudor challenge by becoming a knight, a court fool or an actor to impress the new queen. Don’t forget to explore our exciting pop-up palace where you can discover the story of Anne’s coronation through a 360 degree film created by local young people and Aardman Animations.
Once you’ve completed your mission, you’ll meet the royal couple in the moat for Anne’s coronation celebration rehearsal.”
