Black Knight can provide a number of characters in your school, from a Norman Knight in 1066, a plague victim of the Black Death, through to a King in the Wars of the Roses.
Children meet our character in role- either to the entire school for a ‘special guest’ to assembly, or ready for a 9.30 a.m. start.
The children are encouraged to immerse themselves in the period being studied, with music, dance, art, heraldry and daily life compared and contrasted with today.
We have probably the largest collection of authentically replicated objects from the time for handling and examination/wearing.
These include clothes, pottery, cooperage, glass, tapestry, banners, arms and armour, cookery implements, food and drink, religious objects, and activities such as: making butter, striking a coin, grinding corn, weaving/spinning, firelighting with flint & steel, and writing with quill and ink.
We have NATIONWIDE COVERAGE to enable us to deliver our school workshops across the country, where-ever your school is located. From Suffolk to Anglesey, Isle of Wight to Scotland, we make history happen!
