Become a ‘Time Explorer’ at a new Peterborough holiday club

Friday 28 April

A new 9.30am to 4.30pm weekday holiday club, for ages 8-13 years, is starting up in Peterborough city centre this summer.

The history themed holiday club, called Time Explorers, will include a huge range of exciting activities. There will be archery to defend the castle, building super-strong structures, making gruesome grotesques and marvellous medicines, and preparing a fabulous feast to serve in a real medieval hall. There will also be sports, stories, medieval movie-making and lots more.

This action packed programme runs from 31st July to 11th August, and again from 14th August to 25th August. It is based at Peterborough Cathedral and will be using some of the wonderful historic buildings and open spaces on the Cathedral site.

“I am really excited about this holiday club,” says Alex Carton, Schools and Families Officer at the Cathedral, who is leading the programme with her team. “It’s going to be such fun to share some of the more weird and wonderful aspects of life in times gone by with young explorers who have lots of imagination and energy. I can’t wait for Time Explorers to get started!”


The cost per child is £25 for a day, or £100 per week and sibling discounts are available. To book or to find out more please contact Alex Carton or Judi Horspole on 01733 355307 or email
