A hands-on workshop about a day in the life of a medieval monk. Children will have the chance to: dress up as a monk; explore medieval herbs and make a lavender bag; make a candle from natural beeswax; write with a quill and illuminate a manuscript; meet a real-life Benedictine monk; and more!

Adults and children will get to enjoy lunch in the Abbey’s magnificent surroundings (you’ll have to bring your own lunch, but we will provide samples of delicious medieval pudding to try!)

£5 per child (payment received on the day)

Children get to take home what they make!

Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
