Event timetable




Royal Charles




Family Relay



Children telling the story of the Royal Charles

Traverse board

Signalling A history of signalling from Ancient Greece through to early 19th century. Filled with information and handson activities. Royal Charles The story of the life of this great ship and how it was snatched from under our very nose. What did Samuel Pepys have to say about it? A story told by the children in graphic detail as they sail in the ships. Navigation Learn how to use a ships log - why do we measure speed in knots - read the compass rose - what is the traverse board - how does a sextant work. An amazing presentation as the children leap overboard in order to measure our speed. Family relay A punishing schedule of activity as family take on family in a race to capture the enemy ship. Time to put in to practice all you have learned today. Shanties Time for the children to haul in the anchor. All hands on deck as we sing the traditional shanties.
