My most inspiring moment would be the Celebration Week which I held at Hampton Court Palace as part of Time Explorers Challenge. It was the culmination of a project which I had been running for the year involving many different schools from across London, some of the schools were invited to take part in activities at Hampton Court Palace. It was inspiring to see students getting to “meet” Anne Boleyn after having spent the whole year studying her, receiving their prizes for their hard work and getting to enjoy some Tudor activities! I loved seeing how engaged they had become in the project.
