The World of James Herriot

Did you hear the news? We have been working hard on developing new offers for yourself and your class. Now we are ready to introduce our new school workshops, outreach sessions, and holiday courses. Don’t miss out the fabulous opportunity of entertaining object handling and time travelling! Ask for more information today!

We have revised our programme for you to choose the perfect workshop for meeting your learning needs. All our sessions are closely linked to the National Curriculum and assist the outside the classroom learning.

Located in the wonderful market town Thirsk, North Yorkshire, our 1940s house and replica air raid shelter take the students back in time. Object handling supports these workshops and the experience of sounds and smells make the trip perfect. Apart from the history related workshops, we also offer art classes and creative writing courses. All our workshops are connected to the life and work of the world-famous vet and author, Alf Wight.

Topics Include:
Wartime Britain
Home sweet Home (1940s)
Who’s James Herriot?
… and many more!

National Curriculum areas covered: History, Literacy, Art& Design, and Science

If you are interested, but not able to bring your students into the museum, you still have the opportunity for experiencing an interesting workshop – in your class room! We have improved our Outreach Programme and are able to deliver various sessions wherever you are.
