Learning and Outreach

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service carry out a wide range of learning and outreach activities, involving over 6,000 people per year. Participants range from 5 year old children through to retired people, both formal and informal learners, academics and those who had previously never heard of archives or archaeology. Activities we organise include:

  •  Local history research groups
  • Community excavations
  • Talks
  • Workshops
  • Tours (PDF 2.12 MB)  
  • School activities
  • Archive film screenings
  • Family history fairs
  • Walkpast
  • Annual Worcestershire Archaeology Dayschool

We can also work with local groups and societies to provide training, workshops and activities for projects. For more details, download the Working With Societies leaflet (PDF 573 KB).

Through these opportunities we can help you to discover more about your local area, your family history, or any subject which our resources could help you with. As well as providing you with an opportunity to find out something new we try to make our events fun and enjoyable.

 Historical documents and artefacts can be used with groups to inspire them about their town or village, help them to learn new skills, and can form the basis of exciting community projects. If you would like us to work with you on a project we love to discuss it with you.

Our location at The Hive provides us with great opportunities to include even more people in our activities through the extra spaces provided by the meeting rooms and through working with our partner services within the building.

We have a programme of events for 2014 (PDF 1.0 MB) . Please let us know if you like to be added to our mailing list. You can also keep up date with our activities by checking our blog. If you have any questions for our outreach team or if you would like to be kept up-to-date with our planned events and activities you can email us at explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk
