We can come to your school
Would you like a fun and educational visit to your school to enhance your Victorian project? The children will be able to find out for themselves what life was like to be a pupil in 1897. Two experienced costumed volunteer role-play teachers will deliver a Victorian-style lesson using authentic artefacts. All you have to do is provide an appropriate space, dress up Victorian style if you can, and we will do the rest.Costume: girls
