Read all about it! Read all about it! Ever wanted to be a famous journalist for a top newspaper? Well now you can at the latest Passport to the Past event at Gloucestershire Archives. In this free Zoom session, you’ll explore the stories from local newspapers which contain local and national stories that are at times tragic, informative and sometimes even funny! You’ll find out what it takes to be a top journalist and will be given the skills you need to write your very own newspaper article.

Today our newspapers are full of headlines supporting the NHS, celebrating the successes of the Coronavirus vaccination, the relaxation of social distancing, and how school children just like you are finding things as they return to school. Can you imagine what the headlines would have been in 1945, 1914, 1912, 1838 or 1066?

Find out the answers to these and many more questions in these interactive Zoom sessions where you’ll meet other people, hear from experts and enjoy fun activities you can either do during the club, or in your own time afterwards.

If you are aged 6 – 13 and enjoy history and what it can tell us about today’s world, don’t miss this monthly online after school club! You’ll meet, talk to, and have lots of real time fun as experienced session leaders from Gloucestershire Archives as they lead you on an hour-long adventure into the past.
