Curiouser and Curiouser

From 26 May - 16 July, we are inviting younger visitors (aged 5 - 11) to join us in Beverley Minster and to pick up a discovery pack entitled 'Curiouser and Curiouser' to learn about Petrus Alamire's double life as a spy for Henry VIII.

Activities will include questions about cracking secret codes, creating bespoke illuminated letters and finding out more about the music preserved within the pages of Alamire's amazing manuscripts.

The pack has been created by the National Centre for Early Music with funding from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
