    Further Details
    It’s not just a trip around The York Dungeon you can experience with your class, there’s exclusive workshops, such as:

    Explore the history and tales of the streets of York with our actors as they take you on a walking tour of the city.
    What better way to learn more about the darker history of York than by taking to the streets yourself? Enjoy famous scenery as two actors play the quirkiest of guides, taking you to the sites of some of York’s most fascinating and stomach-churning tales.

    Having laughed and screamed with our actors throughout their Dungeon tour; now it’s time to show us your skills! Students will be encouraged to get into character themselves by a professional performance team and show us just how convincing they can be.
    This is a highly interactive Performing Arts workshop with a Dungeon twist, and certainly a stimulating way to get thinking about York’s dark history!

    Time to get in touch with the Norse within, in this brand new workshop that combines history, theatre and creative thinking. The Vikings didn’t record much of their history like we do now; it’s quite rare to find things written down. But they did pass down their stories and sagas in a different way: through story-telling and song!

    Viking history was famously told through saga and song, passed down through the ages; now it’s time for your school group to bring those tales back to life.

    With prices starting from £4.95 per child, and everything a Teacher might need, from classroom resources, to risk assessments; The York Dungeon truly has everything you need to take the class on a real trip through history.
