The Hull History Centre will be ‘Rebuilding Marvell’s Hull with Minecraft.
Saturday 21st November at the Hull History Centre 10-4
Book your free ticket on EventBrite.
This interactive workshop will combine research into Andrew Marvell and 17th-century Hull with the popular game Minecraft to help bring history alive for younger audiences.
Minecraft experts will be on-hand to help participants build four key landmarks from Andrew Marvell’s Hull – Beverley Gate, Holy Trinity Church, Hull Grammar School and the Hull Charterhouse – using plans, maps, and other historical material in the History Centre’s collections. The completed buildings will be showcased on the HullCraft website.
This is a Bring Your Own Device event - you will need to bring their own device, whether it is a laptop or a tablet with their copy of Minecraft on. If you don't have a device with Minecraft on you will not be able to take part in this workshop - but we will be creating videos during the event for everybody to view afterwards.
