Learning Sessions & Activities
Homes a Long Time Ago
This session is a gentle introduction to how people lived in the past.
Plague, Potions and Pestilence!
Explore a ghastlier side to Astley Hall
Firmly routed in local history, pupils learn about the people who lived at Astley Hall in 1851.
We offer private tours for all primary or secondary schools and colleges who can make use of the building and its fantastic collections for a variety of different topics. Our collections are an excellent starting point for studying a wide variety of subjects from local history to art and design.
We are happy to accommodate school visits to our temporary art exhibitions within Astley Hall and the Farmhouse Gallery. We usually arrange slots for an hour at a time and can provide clipboards and pencils for your visit. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
