A beach picnic, rock-pooling and a knobbly-knee competition were just some of the activities children enjoyed during a drama workshop.

Golden Valley Primary School’s year one pupils were visited in Nailsea by the Freshwater Drama Company, which helped children experience what holidays in England were like in the 20th century.

The knobbly-knee competitions and live entertainment would have been enjoyed at Butlins in the 1970s, a beach picnic and hunting through rock pools represented the 1950s and a prom walk and a Punch and Judy Show were popular activities in 1910.
