Full or half day sessions with costumed interpreters giving talks and demonstrations based on National Key Stage History objectives, local history or themed characters. These presentations can take place at your location, either outdoors or within a School. All age groups catered for, sessions can be adapted to suit each groups needs, all our interpreters are CRB checked and risk assessments available for each activity.
From Key Stage 1, right through to Key Stage 5, we can cover the most of the Historical periods.
Linking Demonstrations from Living History experts from class based lessons to complete year or school based presentations, as well as historical site visits, we can bring History alive and give teachers and children memorable learning experiences from many Historical periods. Presentations can be given on aspects of local history, or how local people and places directly impacted on a wider world. Such activities as Quill Pen writing, or Latin for beginners, simple but enjoyable interactive dance lessons, archery, medieval games, and other history based activities from Roman to Tudor, and Medieval to modern day. We can produce bespoke packages that suit your school’s curriculum, as all presentations can be developed to your requirements, please e-mail us with your ideas or requirements.
In Weymouth, we can arrange an indoor venue, heated, with catering services, and a bar (if required). There is a 80 seated capacity, with disabled access and toilets. We also offer guided history tours around the surrounding area of Weymouth Old Harbour, or further afield tailored to your requirements on a variety of subjects.
