We can attend your festival or community event...

For Festivals:


We can attend your festival with our 6m x 3m marquee and do history workshops for all ages, all weekend, 10am - 5pm. If you have more room, we always have plenty of ideas to fill it! Some of the things we've done before have included:

Stone Age tool making,

Medieval weapons demonstrations,

Roman mock battles,

Longbow archery,

Cave Painting,

Code Breaking,

History talks

And many others...

We have a dress-up area for the kids, loads of hands-on displays and genuine artefacts as well as regular demonstrations and activities. Our staff are always on hand to answer any questions.

We make sure we vary the displays and workshops so every day is different.

If you think we'd go down well at your event, please get in touch.

We normally ask a donation of £50

for weekend events.

We may ask for additional travel expenses if your event is a long way away (we're Wiltshire born and bred, but we love to travel!).


For local day events...


We can tailor a display to suit whatever theme you're planning. Or we can bring all our own favourites and show your visitors a bit of everything...

We normally ask a donation of £50 

for day events.


All our donations go straight back into the project and will help to finance new exhibits for next year..

These sessions are free if you live in the Melksham area including: Atworth, Broughton Gifford, Bulkington, Great Hinton, Keevil, Melksham, Melksham Without, Poulshot, Seend, Semington and Steeple Ashton
