Wednesdays and Fridays

One small action is where it starts. It can be something seemingly insignificant can go on to change the world. Some of the biggest revolutions have started with the smallest actions: an accident.

Work together as a team to take on this interactive mission, throughout the halls of Battersea Arts Centre, to unlock the history of the revolutionary Charlotte Despard and her notorious Despard Club.

No one knows they’re changing the world while they’re doing it.

For KS3 or equivalent.
