There is plenty to see and do for all ages at The Workhouse.

Bring the family and experience a full programme of living history events, tours and exhibitions. Younger visitors can enjoy children’s trails and games that tell stories from a historic and contemporary perspective. There are opportunities to dress up as pauper boys and girls in specially recreated costumes. Why not get your photo taken while writing on slate in your best copperplate writing and share it with us on social media? 

Visit our 'What’s on' page for full details of all the events taking place.
