Meet Margaret Russell, a Maid of Honour in the court of Queen Elizabeth I, whilst we explore her reign and the legacy of the Golden Age of Exploration!

During this workshop, the children will:

  • Create tableaus of events from this fascinating period.

  • Discover how Elizabethan society and its hierarchical system was organised and meet significant figures, including the influential Sir Walter Raleigh

  • Create a timeline placing The Elizabethans in historical context, linking them to the modern day and our current Queen, Elizabeth II

  • Learn a traditional Elizabethan circle dance

“The Drama Hut were amazing, very helpful and accommodating while we were making the arrangements for the workshop to take place. The actor who came was excellent with the children and kept them engaged at all times. She was very informative while also making the workshop fun and exciting. We will use The Drama Hut again for future workshops in our school.”
