1940’s School Lessons
Saturday and Sunday in the Old Schoolhouse. Times vary.
The 1940’s School Lessons take place in the Old Schoolhouse in the centre of the village at various times each day.
The Three R’s and Wartime themed lessons will be delivered to classes of 25 maximum. Mostly appealing to under 14 year olds there is nothing to stop nostalgic ‘grown-ups’ attending in their school shorts and old school ties! Watch out for the Headmistresses wooden ruler which could dish out stinging raps on the knuckles for pupils misbehaving and woe-betide any who give her any back-chat!
Fun and educational in equal measure, this event is heavily oversubscribed, hence this year it is limited to advance tickets only to ensure a seat at the desk. Maximum 25 pupils per class.
Saturday at 11.45, 13.45 and 15.15
Sunday at 12.00 and 14.00
