Frequently Asked Questions 

Below are some of our most asked questions but please do get in touch as we are always happy to discuss how you can bring history to life in your school.


ReachOut Educate - who are you? 

ReachOut Educate is part of the ReachOut Arts group, a successful creative events and education company based in Shropshire in the West Midlands. Our Educate section is where you will find our Medieval Days - Living History workshops, Anti Bullying workshops,  as well as our Story telling and Story creating workshops. You can find out more about us by visiting our main website.

Are you approved by any organisations?

We are members of the Independent Theatre Council. We are also approved by the council for learning outside the classroom.  We hold the quality badge meaning that you can rest assured that our workshops will meet your requirements in regards to learning and safety. 

We are also proud associate members of the Anti Bullying Alliance. 

What are your fees?

With the exception of our mini workshops which begin at £150, our workshop prices begin at a basic rate of £325 for a half day for example - 9:30am-12:30pm and a basic rate of £530 for a full day for example - 9:30am-3pm with lunch break. These prices include travel within 25 miles of WV15 5BA. If your setting is outside of this radius, travel expenses fees including any congestion charges or specific parking charges and if necessary accommodation cost for our team would be added subject to where you are.. Upon receipt of your enquiry we will check our availability against your chosen dates and provide you with a final quote to suit your needs.

If you are more local we may also offer shorter assembly based sessions - please enquire for the cost on these. 

What does the fee include?

Your quote price will include

  •  1 or 2 practitioners (depending on student numbers) fully trained, insured and hold an enhanced DBS on the update service.

  • Our day can work around you, we can start with a full group explainer assembly type session and then move into providing as many workshop sessions as we can fit into your day based on your timings, this could be several 30 minute sessions or one or two longer sessions. We can ensure we cover certain elements of the history to match your lessons or we can provide a general round up of the era. Our team can discuss this with you in advance to make sure we are covering your needs.

  • Every student participating in the session will have the chance to make and take home their own coin from the time period. 

  • Students will also get to handle and try on many artefacts and participate in activities such as quill writing, brass rubbing, wool spinning.

  • Prizes - if you are happy for us to, we may add an element of competition into the workshops and will provide prizes for this. 

  • We have many add on elements too that you may choose to book on top of our basic package such as a Medieval dance lessons, Roman mosaic making and more. 

  • If you would also like a digital certificate of participation for your students 'Roman for the day' etc we can also provide these on request. 

How far do you travel?

We have team members that are available to travel UK wide, we are based in the West Midlands/Shropshire. However, we would be more than happy to visit you if you are a bit further a field. The cost of travel and in some circumstances when accommodation would be needed prior to your workshop would be incorporated into your quote for a workshop. 

What do we need to provide as a school?

Prior to the workshop, we will send out our terms and conditions for you to agree to, your date will be confirmed upon confirmation of you acceptance of our Ts and Cs. We will then send out an invoice for the workshop which will be due 7 days prior to our visit via Bacs transfer.

On the day we will need a large space such as a school hall or cleared classroom with tables (usually around 5-6 tables for the artefacts alone plus additional tables for activity stations) 

We will also need access to a plug socket in order to play atmospheric background music. The bigger the space we can work in the better. 

Although our team are fully trained educators with safeguarding training, we would still require a member of your school staff to stay with the group at all times. Further information on our set up is provided during the booking process.

Which areas of the curriculum do you cover? 

As we deliver our sessions in a variety of methods, there is opportunity to meet several curriculum aims and learning objectives. click here for a basic list of what we will cover, however, please note that many more areas will come into our sessions.

It all sounds exciting, how do I book?

You can make your initial enquiry using our contact page form. Alternatively, drop an email to with your preferred era, 2 possible date options, the age group of your students and approx number of participants as well as  your location.

Once we have this information we can get the ball rolling. 

We look forward to taking your students back in time,

From all at 'Medieval Days'
