Helmet, Sword, Scooter…Charge!

  • Discovery Museum Blandford Square Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE1 4HZ United Kingdom (map)

Prepare for a historic battle as we take over Discovery Museum's Great Hall for a fun filled family adventure celebrating the arrival of their newest gallery, Charge! The Story of England's Northern Calvary. 

We'll be crafting helmets and swords, then helping you create your very own cavalry banner. Get put through your paces by the Drill Sergeant, try your sword skills on the dummy and test yourself on an assault course. Then hop on one of our scooter horses...3..2..1..CHARGE! 

If it all gets too much, take a well earned kip in the cardboard base camp. 

All set to a soundtrack of military classics featuring Abba's “Waterloo”, Edwin Starr's “War” and everything in between.
