Special Events

English Civil War Fleetwood Museum

Special events weeks give pupils and teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in stimulating, hands-on activities in breath-taking historical settings. All sessions are led by skilled interpreters who bring our museum sites to life through interactive demonstrations.

Sessions last two hours, consist of 3or 4 activities running simultaneously and can be booked in the morning 10-12 or afternoon 12.30-2.30. We can normally take up to 80 pupils per session. Small groups are welcome but please note that depending on the number attending, pupils from different schools/organisations may be included in the same group.
