"The workshops were excellent and the school assembly was hilarious! 10 out of 10!" 

-St. Joseph's Primary School, Castleford.

Riveting shows, captivating workshops and winning walks through time full of fun, facts and fine adventure. Wield a real sword, dress as a pirate or play King Henry VIII Wife Swap, all in the comfort of your own school.

Our standard repetoire stretches from The Stone Age to The Second World War, with commissions and made to measure pieces also available. We write and deliver topic launches, history days and themed workshops on many themes.

There are full and half day packages on offer with pupils interacting in live games and performance; as well as handling objects from the period.

We are also proud to support Modeshift and Modeshift STARS, organisations at the very forefront of sustainable travel initiatives across the UK
