A Smugglers’ Child – a talk for children and their families

Following on from her talk at last year’s Christchurch Smuggler Festival, Julie will be presenting her talk for families,

A Smuggler’s Child,

at, Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre

on, Wednesday 25th October at 2pm.

Julie says: ‘My talk looks at children in Christchurch and surrounding area at the time Smuggling was at its peak. The children explore what kinds of jobs their families would have had and what life was like. It also looks at why people smuggled and how the smuggling gangs worked. At the end of the talk children are asked to decide whether they think their family would have been involved.’

The talk takes place in the new visitor centre and costs £4 for adults and £2 for under 16s.

Booking is essential by calling the centre on: 01202 451618
