Historical Interactive visit to Hazelrigg House
Students will be greeted by an actor dressed in period costume, and upon entering Hazelrigg House (built approximately 1570) will have the opportunity to dress up in period costume which will be provided by Looking Glass. They will then spend a fun interactive day, pitched at their age, learning about the house’s links to Northampton Castle, George Baker (founder of Geology), Women’s rights and to Oliver Cromwell, who was rumoured to have spend the night at Hazelrigg before the battle of Naseby in 1645. They will then have a guided tour of the house, watch a small documentary where they will be taken back to the past to meet all the previous owners of the house, before finally visiting a room in Hazelrigg furnished as it would have been a hundred years ago. After having lunch, they will then embark on a guided tour of the nearby Northampton Castle site and St. Peters Church (built in the early 12th Century) and the links to Thomas Becket who was put on trial there. The final part of the day will be spent having a group photograph taken in costume.
