How we lived ... support historic interpretation and enquiry for all National Curriculum key stages through costumed characters and period artifacts. Although we are based in the South West of England we are happy to visit other areas on request.

The period concerned can be identified in discussion and can be anything from World War 2 back to 1066. We are currently unable to offer interpretation of ancient history, but hope to be able to add this to our portfolio in due course.
