COSTUMED interpreter Paul Clair and work experience student Alice Foreman demonstrate the Tudor game of cup and ball.

It is one of a wealth of games visitors can try out at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard as part of hands-on activities for all the family on offer at the Tudor Games and Pastimes event.

Visitors can take a step back in time as they try out games and instruments from the period.

Rebecca Ashton, assistant visitor services manager at the museum, said: ‘It gives people the chance to try out the games that would have been played in the period such as Nine Men’s Morris, which is a board game – we have a giant version and a small version – and Catch Quoit.

‘It’s basically to show children what children in the Tudor period would be doing with their families at this time of year.

‘We also have musical instruments for people to try out because there would have been a lot of music at this time of year.’

The Tudor Games and Pastimes event runs daily until Monday from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.
