Sunday 8th July – British Museum Tour

On Sunday 8th July there will be a tour of the British Museum in preparation for the 3 weeks, to gain a deeper and more meaningful perspective on the three weeks.

Travel back in time through the British Museum with Mrs Shoshana Tugendhaft, to experience the four very different cultures that first subdued and then attempted to absorb the eternal people. Surround yourself with artefacts hailing from a glorious past and imagine the long journey of our people through Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome.
