Mr Hitler is on the march and we have no powdered egg. Evacuate your class to experience a child’s eye view of World War II.

‘Don’t Panic’ takes you through the struggles and victories of life on the Home Front. Immerse yourselves as you are evacuated to Warwickshire in September 1939. Listen to the memories of real WWII evacuees and shelter from an air raid during the blackout. Be history detectives and discover the different roles on the Home Front using real and replica objects. Work out your rations for the week and learn how to do your bit for the war effort by recycling.
