While there are plenty of ways and means of getting large groups of students to London, using specialisedschool travel companies is, say many experts, the best and most efficient way to organise such a trip. As well as being extremely knowledgeable, these companies are able to tailor itineraries to suit curriculum needs.
For students of Art and History, there is no better way to immerse in the heart of the museums of London than by taking part in their Museums at Night events. Taking place over three evenings, the museums will open their doors after hours to groups of visiting students. From May 14 to May 17, school travel companies can take students to explore the history, heritage and art in the city’s best-known establishments. They’ll enjoy such opportunities as screenings, exhibits and artwork at Somerset House and Freemason’s Hall, among others.
Conventional ideals of theatre are being challenged in the Brunel Museum’s after-hours performance of Theatre of Blood: Hecuba & Titus Andronicus, in the very room where Brunel nearly drowned. For adventurous and fun loving students, they can sign up for tango lessons after the show.
For an evening of subterfuge, school travel companies can organise a visit to the UCL’s Grant Museum of Zoology for a Museums at Night Murder Mystery, where students can form teams and take part in this nighttime “who-dun-it”. There’s even a prize for the best dressed and a reception and viewing of the museum after the event.
To round off three days of Museum Lates, students can visit the Horniman Museums and Gardens for some “extreme” activities. There will be acrobatics, stories by candlelight, African music and much more.
Parents and educators are being encouraged to “look outside the square” in order to inspire and motivate young students, and these innovative events fit the bill.
