A Temple to Water

In collaboration with Dragon Breath Theatre A Temple to Water is an award-winning, immersive, day-long teacher-led / actor-supported visit to the Victorian Papplewick Pumping Station, meeting characters from the museum's industrial and social history.

The visit is part of an education offer with extensive cross-curricula resources investigating Papplewick’s local, social and engineering history, and its significance as a site for considering the management of global water resources today.

This visit can support a half term's thematic curriculum around water, science, geography, history, and Literacy, and is focused on Key Stages 2 and 3.
