COVID-Safe Workshop
First World War
£5 per pupil

This on-site workshop has been altered to become as COVID-safe as possible for your pupils, staff and Royal Armouries staff. However, this does not mean all the fun and engagement has disappeared!

Please contact the Education Team to see what control measures we have put in place and discuss any questions you may have. 

Ensure your pupils always remember with our unforgettable First World War workshop.

Workshop content

Your pupils will be immersed in an unforgettable learning experience led by two characters: a drill sergeant and a matron.

Your pupils will get the true soldier experience as Corporal Gibbs puts them through their paces via a high-energy military drill.

The matron will test your pupil’s skills and stomachs in our interactive medical session, helping your pupils understand the advances in medical practice and the role women played in the conflict.

We guarantee your pupils will remember this experience for many years to come.
