Planning a School Visit

We can help to tailor a visit to your needs, and you can select from the following activities: a Museum visit and handling session, an Art Gallery visit and/or practical art or drama-based activity, and an Outdoor Learning package, to make it a full day visit to Lakeside.  Alternatively you can book to bring a group or class to attend an individual performance or workshop.  

Take a look at our schools menus of activity:
