ABOUT

I am a historical reenactor who has spent the last 15 years working in the education sector. I am a member of the Taunton Garrison Historical Reenactment Group and their Official Historian. History Workshops can cater for all year groups from KS1 to KS4. We can custom design sessions and/or days around school timetables and a school's curriculum.

Be it: a Tudor barber-surgeon, a soldier from an Elizabethan Trained Band, a musketeer from the English Civil War, a rebel and a redcoat from the Monmouth Rebellion or a Tommy of the First World War - we can provide your pupils with an inspiring and memory-making day!

Tailor made days - full reenactment clothing and equipment - interactive activities - parent & teacher workshops - whole school history day planning and much more. All our sessions are fully insured and staff are DBS checked.
