    To take pupils back in time to the Royal Albert Hall in the late 1800s, bringing the Victorian era to life through interaction with characters representing different sections of society and learning about the achievements of notable individuals. The Victorian Interactive Tour is created in conjunction with the KS2 Curriculum guidelines and directly supports the local history study. The tour and accompanying workshop will help to extend pupils’ knowledge beyond 1066 and act as an entry point into historical periods that they will study more fully at key stage 3.

    Suitable for the whole of KS2 but ideal for Years 5 and 6.

    Your visit lasts for 105 minutes and will be broken down into two sessions of 45 minutes (45 minute tour and 45 minute workshop) with time allowed for arrival and departure and swapping groups. Role-play: Please prepare your pupils (and staff!) for their ‘ journey back in time’. They will be expected to behave in the manner of a Victorian visiting the Royal Albert Hall.
