Event Details

Riverstories: Archaeology & Storytelling Club for Children and Families 

6 Weekend or Holiday Sessions, from October Half Term to February.

Sessions are aimed at Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) children and their parents/carers.

Riverstories is a new club for children (and their parents or carers) who would like to learn about the story of the City alongside the River Thames.

Starting with a search for archaeological treasures alongside the river, you will learn more about the history of London and the stories of people in the distant past.

Riverstories will connect families with the rich archaeology of the Thames, developing children’s sense of place, time and identity.

Participants will develop their skills and confidence to create and share their own stories, bringing new voices to reshape and retell archaeological stories.

Riverstories will be based on the Iron Age archaeology of the Thames in West London (Barn Elms, Putney, Fulham).

You will take part in guided walks, object-based sessions, and virtual reality experiences, learn new craft skills and create objects that you can take home and explore history through storytelling workshops.

The project will consist of 6 day-long workshops, scheduled over 6 months:
• Sunday 22nd October, 1PM-3:30PM (Walk along the Thames foreshore in Putney)
• Monday 23rd October, 10AM-3PM (Fulham Palace Education Centre)
• Sunday 12th November, (Local Venue, TBC)
• Saturday 9th December, (Local Venue, TBC)
• Friday 5th January, (Fulham Palace Education Centre)
• Sunday 11th February, (Local Venue, TBC)

Where activities are taking place in Fulham, supported travel will be provided. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout.

If you sign up to the club, you would be expected to try to attend all sessions. Children must be supervised by a parent/carer.
