History of heroes

Including large interactive performances, open-ended workshops and intimate classroom-based sessions, our unique range of History Workshops and Shows for Primary Schools offers perspectives on the lives of people in the past – and asks important questions about ways that the past has affected the present. There are four exciting options we speak about such as:
Black History Month; Heroes include - Rosa Parks, MLK

  • Romans - reenactment with the children
  • Britishness: Heroes include the Queen of england
  • WW2 - Heroes include Alan Turing

Black History Month

History of Heroes provides content regarding the very important subject of black history month.

Going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight black achievement, we take this time to recognize stories that had been largely forgotten and neglected as part of the national narrative. We also focus on one of our most influential leaders Martin Luther King Jr.

Romans

After an introductory talk, the focus of the romans workshop is life in britain under the pax Romana.

The children will explore the dramatic change in the lifestyle of even the lowliest of citizens after the arrival of the roman legions, touch artifact and feel the excitement of the games in the arenas just like in the times of 31 BC

Brtitshness

Defining elements of British culture, how Britain has changed over the years through a fantastic diverse population and many more.

Through a range of dance, props and presentations we take students back into the history of the moments that defined Britain. We also get to grips with how Queen Elizabeth has had such a profound effect on the union and helped us through some testing times.

World War 2

The workshop is an exciting look at how life was different during World War Two. We will learn how inspiring individuals help turn the tide of the war for the allies.

Our main Hero for this workshop is Alan Turing, an incredibly clever man who is often overlooked in history but we highlight his contribution to the Code breakers at Bletchley Park.
