Faculty of Classics

 
Twilight with the Museums, discover free and low-cost activities this half term

Are you brave enough to descend into Hades, the Underworld of ancient Greece? It is easy enough to enter, but very few manage to leave... Fortunately for you, the Queen of the Underworld Persephone has offered you the chance to escape if you can gather her six golden pomegranate seeds.

For one night in half-term, join us with the lights down low and see our Cast Gallery in a new way. Take a risk and make your journey, meet gods, complete the challenges – and see if you can cross the river Styx to make your way back to the land of the living.
