Prices for a lighting session start from £150 per session and will be subject to additional travel fees where applicable. (We are based in Shropshire in the West Midlands)

What is included?

Our basic package for a lightning session includes:

  • 1 or 2 practitioners dependent on student numbers. 

  • An interactive welcome presentation.

  • Engaging activities that take students back in time using creative arts to aid your students in gaining a love of history. 

  • Props/Resources for hands on activities. 

  • There are various focuses within these sessions, you can create a newspaper article, a tv report a radio report, a drama piece, a dance routine, some art work. So many options available and each one is adapted to be bespoke to the school we are visiting. 

Meet and Greets provide hot seat questioning, activities led by the character if required and plenty of photographic opportunities.  Whether you want Henry VIII and someone from the court to visit or Florence Nightingale, Boudicca or Samuel Pepys - there are a variety of characters you can meet.
