Learning & Outreach

To contact the Learning and Outreach team email Nikki Ritson at nikki.ritson@trowbridge.gov.uk.

Trowbridge Museum provides a comprehensive range of exciting, interesting and challenging learning and outreach workshops for a wide range of ages. We have established an excellent reputation for providing high quality workshops and are constantly seeking to develop the service in order to make it as accessible and inclusive as possible. You can download a copy of our current education leaflet here.

Our service is comprised of both formal and informal workshops and includes museum-based sessions for schools, outreach and assemblies, and loans boxes for residential and care homes and a variety of themed activities and events for children, young people and families during the school holidays. The service is run by a small team consisting of a full time Learning & Outreach Officer, Nikki Ritson  (nikki.ritson@trowbridge.gov.uk) and part-time Assistant Learning & Outreach Officer Aisha Baker, (museum.assistant@trowbridge.gov.uk). Support is also provided by a dedicated team of volunteers.

We have developed workshops for nursery and reception age children, and from September 2011 have offered an outreach service to schools.

We offer a free museum-based service to Trowbridge’s schools*, whilst charges apply to schools from outside the town, and for some workshops including Monday SEN sessions, reminiscence work and our outreach service. Most of our holiday activities are free, although we do charge for some activities. Prices for these activities will be advertised on flyers and the website.

We cover a very broad range of historical periods, such as Romans, Tudors, Victorian and World War 2, and themes such as Weaving and Cultural Diversity, and we may be able to create workshops to suit your topic. Education, Learning and Outreach Price List
