Happening History provide highly interactive, fun, educational workshops on castle life for 5-8 year olds. We bring a wealth of knowledge, experience & historical paraphernalia combined with an engaging storyline which really helps bring the subjects to life. The children learn kinaesthetically, by stepping into the past and undertaking hands on activities such as donning medieval costumes, learning about knights by trying on armour and holding a blunt sword, learn about food by making flour on the quern & butter in the churns. Every student will be involved in every activity. Each student will have an hour & ten minutes of activities in total.

Costs are based on your schools location & the number of students attending the workshops. Please contact us for a competitively priced experience your students will never forget.

If you would prefer a visit to a castle we can also be found working at Bodiam Castle, nr Battle, East Sussex for 5 weeks in the year. You can combine a visit to this idyllic castle with a 45 minute Happening History workshop for each group and a guided tour of the castle. We are usually there last 2 weeks in June, last week in September and the first 2 weeks of October each year. Our workshops are suitable for students aged from 5 to 18. If you are interested, please enquire direct to us and we will forward your details on to the education manager at the castle.
