Booking Sessions

Initial Enquiry

Please complete the enquiry form as the initial stage of booking a session at school or at the museum. If you would rather discuss your requirements with the Education Officer, or would like to join our schools membership scheme, please telephone on 01932 565764, or email  [email protected]

Sessions at the Museum

Please note that for sessions at the museum we recommend that you visit before bringing your group so that you can familiarlise yourself with the facilities, although a risk assessment is sent with all booking conformations. Lunch is eaten in the education room, or in the museum garden if the weather permits. The museum has 2 unisex public toilets, one of which is adapted for wheelchair use and the museum has flat access throughout. Your group can use the museum shop, or if you prefer, pre-arranged "goody bags" can be ordered, details of which will be sent with your booking confirmation.

Sessions at School

Our session deliverer will aim to arrive at school at least 15 minutes before the start of the session. Some of the sessions we offer involve the transportation of a large number of artefacts and props so if a parking space near to the venue can be reserved that would be extremely helpful. Please notify us if there is not flat access to the classroom where the session is to take place.
