Fort Lytton Comes Alive Again!

Holding the Fort! is a go-back-in-time program for school age children. It’s a dramatized experience set in 1944, when Fort Lytton was in full operation (although past the immediate threat of attack). The children are framed as new recruits on their first day. In the story the General is arriving at 12 noon for an inspection and it’s a marathon race to get ready in just two hours. Hats and flags have to be made; semaphore has to learned; and drill on the twin-six pounder has to be practised. The General is played by one of our Fort Lytton Historical Association guides, and of course he gives the fort a pass and praises the competence of the new recruits.

Times - 10.00 - 12.30   Dates  June 29, 30 July 1, 6, 7, 8.
