Outreach Programme

KS2 Mrs Anne Goodison – the Victorian Egyptologist  

A costumed actress delivers a fascinating interactive performance that brings to life Mrs Goodison’s expeditions to Egypt in the 19th century.  This powerful event gives an insight into the life of a local hero, Mrs Goodison, who was passionate and highly informed about Ancient Egypt, and who returned with the artefacts on show in the museum today. Students interact to shape the direction of the performance as it happens, by contributing their ideas, interpreting hieroglyphics and identifying artefacts.

1 hour performance plus opportunity for Q & A
