For this year’s school’s programme, historian, presenter and journalist, Dominic Sandbrook will be in schools talking about his new History series for children. The Adventures in Time series is in the vein of Harry Potter or Star Wars, but the stories are real. A thrilling journey into history, full of adventure and intrigue, with the bonus of mirroring the school curriculum! He will be visiting St Mary’s and Colfox, where we hope that Bridport Primary and Burton Bradstock will be able to join, and so all children in the Minerva Trust can benefit. This event is supported by a grant from Bridport Town Council.
