Overview

Going for gold!

Now in its sixth year, the Heritage Festival Schools’ Day provides your class with the opportunity to explore and experience over 5,000 years of Peterborough’s rich and diverse history. Set amidst the inspiring surroundings of Peterborough Cathedral you will meet costumed re-enactors representing life from the Stone Age to WWII in this unique multi-period adventure.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR: THE QUEST FOR THE MISSING OLYMPIC RINGS

With the Olympics 2020 just around the corner, this year’s schools’ day has the Olympic ethos at its heart—community, identity and diversity. Discover how this ethos has transcended through time by meeting historical figures and finding out what drove them to ‘go for gold’. What drove Boudica to fight for her freedom, or Victorian pioneers to trial new medicines?  Collect the clues and solve the quest to see that in order to learn how to achieve in the present, we must first look to the past.
