Learning & Outreach

We work closely with schools, colleges, lifelong learning groups and community groups, providing advice, workshops, talks and lectures.

Thousands of pupils have used our wide ranging school programme. Every workshop, living history re-enactment, handling activity, drama or creative activity is designed by our experienced staff to match and exceed National Curriculum requirements.  We use our collection as a stimulating resource for skills based and interactive learning.

Our lecture and education room is also available for hire, offering space for up to 40 people. The room contains audio visual equipment, a hearing loop and tea and coffee making facilities.

Our service is free to civic area schools. There are minimal charges for out of area schools and community groups.
