Our Outreach activities are on hold at the moment due to Government guidelines.
Sign up to Teacher News to be informed when bookings open.
Before requesting an Outreach visit, please read the following questions and check our prices below.
What events would you like us to present?
We can deliver a maximum of four sessions in a day, but no more than three different activities (e.g. The Bubble Show, Feel the Force, and Out of This World). To see all the activities we offer, see the Outreach home page.
What dates would you like us to visit your venue?
We take bookings for one term ahead. We are not available on Mondays.
What are your ideal timings for the day?
We can arrive at your venue by 8am and will need access to the performance space at least one hour before the start of our first session, to set up our equipment.
If we are performing the same session back-to-back, we need at least 15 minutes between shows to reset our props. If we are changing to a different activity, we will need at least 30 minutes to reset our props (45 minutes for the Material World show).
Remember to plan the timings around your normal breaks and lunch time, and any double-use of the performance space, for example a school hall that is also used for lunch.
What are the costs?
Please see our prices for schools and communities below. If you are more than 50 km from the Museum, prices reflect the cost of travel and overnight accommodation: you could therefore consider 'partnering up' with other schools or community groups in your local area to share the cost.
Before you request a visit, please familiarise yourself with our booking terms.
