EATMT schools programme

This programme is currently suspended for the 2017 season.

We offer a range of ready made programmes for schools, but we can also work with you on longer-term projects (click here for examples), or specific programmes to celebrate your school's anniversary etc. Most sessions include folk songs and dances from East Anglia, and many fit well with Victorian studies or early twentieth-century local history topics.

The workshops are usually led by Katie Howson, who has over 20 years experience in running these sessions, and was formerly a teacher and advisory teacher for local history, as well as being an authority on the local folk music tradition. Katie has full CRB accreditation and can provide references if needed.

Some of these activities can be adapted for us with holiday clubs etc - get in touch if you'd like to discuss possibilities.

Please email or ring 01449 771090 (office hours and 24 hr ansaphone) to discuss details.
