Charge! The Story of England's Northern Cavalry


Until 1 January 2019

CHARGE! is a new gallery at Discovery Museum telling the story of the Light Dragoons and the Northumberland Hussars over the last 300 years, through rare and unusual artefacts, photography, film, audio and reconstruction.

We are looking for a class or classes to come and visit Discovery Museum and take part in a series of hands on activities to learn a bit more about life in the cavalry through the ages, the technologies produced and the stories to tell. They will then be supported to create a display in the museum connected to this exhibition. This will involve sessions in school and possibly additional visits to the museum.


The project will run from September 2018 to January 2019 to produce work with the exhibit in place from February to May 2019.


If you are interested in this free project can you contact Alina Trewhitt, Assistant Learning Officer, CHARGE on 0191 2772323 or email
