We are currently reviewing our education programme for the 2019 season. Workshops and rates will be announced in late November. You are welcome to read the information below to give you an insight into our programme and reserve a date to visit during our 2019 season.

 

Ethos

The ethos of our education programme is to provide an environment where the pupils use the skills and knowledge they have acquired at school whilst working towards their target Key Stages. As such, they are encouraged to use their imaginations, examine and resolve questions, and of course, have fun. 

Structure

The workshops are led by our costumed historical interpreters. Each workshop, depending on the subject chosen, will consist of an interactive session, performance, or a practical or artefact handling element. 

Delivery

Workshops are designed with flexibility so they can be delivered at the right level for the age group. However, we have also developed workshops that can be tailored to suit the individual key stages required.

Packages and Pricing 

We are no longer taking educational bookings for our 2018 season.
