Key Information about a whole day Living History Workshop:
  • We aim to provide a fully interactive experience, with at least 3 hours of contact time.
  • We can cater for up to 90 children at a time.
  • We bring enough costumes for every child to dress up.
  • Every child makes a souvenir artefact to take home and keep.
  • We bring REAL artefacts for the children to touch and examine - some of them are over 3000 years old...
  • We can adapt our workshops to suit specific topic areas.
  • We always link to local history where possible.
  • Hall space or similar is required for the workshops.
  • For smaller groups a classroom is sufficient providing it has been cleared in the morning so that we can set up!
  • In order for the children to get the most out of the activities, it is helpful to have extra members of staff on hand between 9.40am to 11.30am (flexible according to school break times).
  • Most of our artefacts are small but very REAL- handling original artefacts is a very important part of the workshops, but it's very upsetting when they get broken. Please help us to keep a careful eye on them.
  • Please give us your feedback! We're very proud of what we do and we'd like to be the best - please help us by letting us know what you think.
