Bringing History Alive from the Classroom to the Castle

Interactive History School Visits, Workshops and Activities

Hands on History bring any time period to life right in front of your eyes - from The Stone Age to World War 2.

We deliver a range of exciting, fun and interactive history workshops, demonstrations and have-a-go activities for schools, historical venues and events across Sussex, Surrey, Kent and London.


You will be put right at the centre of the action with hands on activities that let you try out high quality replica arms and period clothing and feel the weight of the weapons swung by historic warriors. Watch in awe as you witness siege machines and have a go on our jousting horse on rails. Then test your skills firing mini-crossbows and WWII guns adapted for paintballs.

School Visits/Workshops

- kick off a new historic topic with a ‘wow’ factor. We can bring history to life for students at all primary and secondary key stages with workshops tailored to support school teachers’ programmes of work with memorable history resources.

Historical Events & Venues

- thrill visitors with life like historic experiences and hands on have-a-go activities including siege machine and artillery demonstrations. Let them fire off replica weapons and dress in traditional uniform and armour for a day they’ll never forget.

Bespoke Items

- we hand make period items in wood, metal, leather and flint for museums and for schools as learning props and for use at historic events.

TV and Film Services

- we can supply, make or source all historic props and clothing for TV, theatrical and video production.

Corporate Events

- give staff, friends or family an experience from the past that they’ll never forget with historical based team building activities, scripted presentations and full day historic events.
