More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Are you looking to add that extra WOW factor to your History Lessons? Wanting to engage and enthuse your Students with something different? History lessons should be Fun, Exciting, Stimulating, your students should be in awe of what happened all those years ago. BUT often History is seen as Dry, Dull, Boring...stuff in books about people who died hundreds of years ago! Let Invite a Knight bring history to life! Watch their faces as a fully armoured Viking, Saxon or Norman Knight walks into the room, complete with weapons of the period!
