'Napoleonic Fortifications'

STEAM Powered Education is having its nineteenth holiday workshop. The theme this time is 'Napoleonic Fortifications'. It will take place at Pier Avenue Baptist Church hall (CO15 1NJ), Clacton during the half term holiday on Tuesday 28th May. It will be from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm with snacks provided. Children will need to bring a packed lunch and pocket money.

This should be a workshop that will introduce some local history of the forts designed to stop the invasion of the French under Napoleon Bonaparte. We will be looking into the history of Napoleon and why he was such a threat to Britain, what defensive forts we made along the coast of Tendring, making a small section of the defences. Additionally, we will be visiting The Redoubt fort in Harwich during the afternoon. 

The cost is £30 for the day. There are only 12 places available so book early to secure a place.  


I hope you agree that it will be worth it!

What can you do?
