Richmond Barracks

Join the Children's History Book Club

Calling all budding history buffs! We’re looking for children aged 9 - 12 to join our Children’s History Book Club.

Hosted by Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche, the Children’s History Book Club meets online, via Zoom, on the last Saturday of the month at 2pm.

The books discussed each month are chosen from suggestions by book club members and can be related to any aspect of history. Previous titles have included The Boldness of Betty, War Horse, and White Bird.

The sessions are fun and interactive, with opportunities for children to discuss other books they have enjoyed or would recommend.

If your child would like to join the book club, or if you would like further information, please contact Dervilia by email at
