A workshop day is delivered by a member of the Heritage & Learning Team and divided into three parts. These include an interactive guided tour, a hands-on workshop session linked to curriculum areas of study and self-conducted time to explore our three heritage spaces.
Workshops run from 10am – 2.15pm and can accommodate up to 90 pupils (in three groups of 30) unless otherwise stated.
