Around the theatre

With Staffordshire University’s Centre of Archaeology

On the first three Thursdays of the Festival, between 11am – 3pm our resident archaeologist, Esme Hookway, will be hosting ‘tea with a trowel’ sessions. Have a cup of tea with her and learn what it is to be an archaeologist. Find out about the amazing finds they have discovered at the University and see some of these for yourself.

Esme will also have a stall of artefacts and will be answering questions from audience members between the matinee and evening shows on 18 and 25 July.

The Centre of Archaeology at Staffordshire University operates from the University’s new £30 million Science Centre. They offer world-class services in commercial, research and community archaeology – all supported by cuttingedge equipment and facilities.
