Following the government’s announcement on 31 October, this workshop is temporarily suspended.

This on-site workshop has been altered to become as COVID-safe as possible for your pupils, staff and Royal Armouries staff. However, this does not mean all the fun and engagement has disappeared!

Please contact the Education Team to see what control measures we have put in place and discuss any questions you may have. 

Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the teachers, we guarantee your pupils will still be talking about this immersive learning experience come the end of the year.

Workshop content

Pupils will be transformed into Iceni warriors to re-live the drama of Boudicca’s rebellion via an immersive, hands-on storytelling session led by a member of the famous tribe.

Pupils will be put through their paces by the disciplined Titus the Centurion to see if they have the strength, power and pride to make it in the Roman Army in an interactive, high-energy military drill.

Pupils will choose which side of the rebellion they support at the end of the day.
