Our Workshops involve engaging, interactive workshops and activities that are tailored to suit your learning outcomes, with an array of artefacts that can be explored giving the students a taste of what it truly was like to live when the Lancaster and York houses were around.
Our basic package includes:
*Experienced educators who are all also trained actors.
*An interactive welcome presentation looking at what it was like to build or live in a castle.
*Where in the timeline do castles fit, we all know castles were built many years ago, but let's find out exactly where they sit on the timeline.
*Every participating student will be able to strike and take home a 'silver' coin with an authentic King's head design.
*An array of artefacts, replicas and costumes to try on and explore
*Hands on activities
*Authentic games and everyday activities from the time period
*Additional prizes for 'in workshop' competition winners
*Brass and wood rubbing activity with option to do some quill writing
*Role Play and drama opportunities
*Optional add on activities
Group sizes will depend on the time frame and space you have available, we are very flexible and can create bespoke programmes for small class sizes right up to a full school approach. We usually suggest a class of 30 students per workshop and the session lasting 1.5 hours; this allows them to ask any questions they have and use all the equipment with bring without feeling rushed.

At Primary school some of our fondest memories were when external visitors came into our classroom. We would love to be 'that' memory for the students we work with whilst in your setting. We are delighted to be able to take our workshops to another level by enhancing our already engaging and interactive sessions with a large collection of artefacts and replica items.
