Looking for something creative and engaging for May half term?

Bring your little radicals to visit PHM and be inspired by our changing exhibition Never Going Underground and create your own superhero puppet.  You can also let the Pansy Project motivate you to decorate a teacup and take a little happiness away with you.  Why not tweet a photo of your finished creation to us at @PHMLearn.

Plan a school visit linking to the National Curriculum 

Why not book a school visit for this summer term or the 2017-2018 school year?  All of our Living History and artist-led sessions link to the National Curriculum in regards to British Values, Citizenship, PSHE, local history, and democracy, to name a few.  We offer inspiring Learning sessions for early years, primary schools, secondary schools, further and higher education institutions.
