Civil War - Family Fun day

Join us for a day of 17th century music and mayhem!

Join us at our summer exhibition to find out more about this pivotal moment on the road to the English Civil War.

Original material held in Hull and the East Riding illustrates the wider context of the Beverley Gate incident and tells the story of Sir John Hotham.Discover the two sieges of Hull, why Queen Henrietta Maria visited Bridlington, a propaganda war (seventeenth century style), and the story of how Sir John Hotham became a hero, then a traitor - and ultimately met his fate at the Tower of London.

There is also an extensive programme of support activities and events including talks, films and family activities.
