As a consequence of the measures in force to minimise the impact of Coronavirus (Covid -19), our Outreach Officer is currently unable to travel to you to provide workshops and pop up museum activities. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list and once we are able to offer these services again we will get back in touch. For existing bookings, please contact our Outreach officer at the above email address and we will endeavour to reschedule for another date. In the meantime, however, we are able to offer virtual Outreach Sessions - for details click here.
We hope that our Outreach team will be once again able to attend events and venues next year. Our pop up museum showcases items from the museum collection along with fun activities for all the family and our outreach workshops involve handling real museum objects, as well as a range of art and craft activities. Our workshops and talks are designed for adult community groups, adult learners, and family learning groups.

The sessions are delivered at your own venue and can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.
Here is some feedback from some of our Outreach workshops:
Wellesley Court Live at Home Scheme – ‘it was a very fun informative session which exceeded expectations which was enjoyed by everyone’.
Turning Point learning disabilities group – ‘thank you so much for coming to our group and running the session. The residents really loved it and are looking forward to visiting the museum!’
Basingstoke Mencap Youth Club – ‘the session was very informative and a great way to engage our group for young people with learning disabilities’.
Ashbourne Court Care Home – 'it was excellent, and Dan was fantastic with the residents.'
