History On The Move was formed in 1997 by two experienced primary school teachers with a passion for history. We also have qualifications in Museum Education and the History of the Fine and Decorative Arts.
We devise and deliver hands-on history workshops, talks and learning resources for schools, museums and historic sites, supporting the curriculum and encouraging life-long learning for all age and ability groups. We also devise and deliver talks for adult groups including historical societies, special interest and reminiscence groups and the U3A.
We ensure continuing professional development by attending training courses and through membership of the Group for Education in Museums Freelance Network.
We undertake local history research to personalize talks, workshops and learning resources and are members of the National Trust Research Group working to enhance visitor information and displays at Eastbury Manor House, Barking, Essex.
We adapt our workshops for all age groups, including Early Years, and have experience in making them accessible to those with special needs
We use costume, artefact handling, dance, toys, games and other practical activities to encourage a greater understanding of everyday life in the past
We are able to research and explore all periods of local history, but our costume and artefact collections focus particularly on Tudors, Victorians and World War Two
We aim to tailor our work to our client’s needs, and to the location in which it takes place
