History Detectives Club

For Kids who love Exploring and Discovering!


Do you like getting crafty? exploring? reading about history?

If that sounds like you then we have designed a club just for you!


Read our fun-fact-packed monthly History Detectives Case Files

Developed with those aged 8-12 in mind, but the club is suitable for anyone under 16.

Membership is free, and you don’t have to join to access the monthly Case Files.

If you do want to join, there are a number of benefits – from discounts on events and activities, awesome members packs with your own Time Travel Passport, members card, badge and access to our private members-only Facebook group.

If you’re not yet a member of the History Detectives club, you can join by downloading and emailing (or posting) a copy of the History Detectives Club Application Form (1) or you can pick one up at our museums. (If you need a large-print copy please let us know).

(Please consider the environment when ticking whether you would like a hard-copy Case File. The digital version is even better!)

This month find out all about Lancaster’s involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
