Act the Facts Workshop at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden

Act out the story of the abbey using a bespoke scripted drama suitable for KS2 and KS3

Using a bespoke script the students act out the story in the dramatic setting of the abbey, moving around the site as the story unfolds. The drama spans the centuries, from the twelfth to the sixteenth, and all the characters work together to answer a 'History Mystery' - Who destroyed Fountains Abbey and why?
