- CAN I WATCH LATER? Yes! Sign-up and we'll email you a recording
Take a journey back in time to see some of the world's most impressive and ancient monuments - the Pyramids, the Sphinx, Temples of Abu Simbel and Luxor. This was a civilisation that saw some of the most amazing construction projects thousands of years ago but today as you cruise the Nile you still see farming with donkeys and hand tools. Hear about how they moved the temples of Abu Simbel and learn more about the discovery of King Tut's grave. A history lover's delight!

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
