We have re-worked all our History workshops so that a visit from us to your school will meet with the Social Distancing guidelines.
One of our company members will arrive with the minimum of equipment (which will be disinfected on arrival and leaving the premises. Gloves to be worn.)
The workshop will take place in the school hall, where seats and benches will be spaced accordingly, the activity the children will be involved with, will be one that can be done on their own.
No contact will be made from our actor to the pupils or teaching staff.
We understand everyone’s concerns, but we will ensure a safe environment for the workshop to take place. And it will be still packed full of fun and facts and great value for money.
We are more than happy to work with you on how this can be managed for an engaging yet fun and informative workshop for the children.
