I really enjoyed Miss B's writing club - I learned how to write lots of different kinds of poems and how to use my imagination to put all my senses into my writing. I looked forward to it every week and it helped me to achieve level 5 at the end of the year.

COMMUNITIES: Imagination is not only for children! At Ignite Lights, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to explore, play, learn and be inspired, whether they're eight or eighty-eight. We love working with families, enabling educational interactions between several generations as they explore historic subject matter. We have experience in working with older people, providing an interesting interactive encounter without any condescension. Whether you're looking for an interactive storytelling session, a living history experience, a writing or theatre workshop, Ignite Lights can cater to your individual needs. We deliver sessions in community centres, care homes, libraries, museums, galleries, theatres and many more - please browse our Communities page or contact us for more information.

 

PARTIES: Your child's birthday should be a special occasion without being stressful for you! You want the best for your child, but don't know where to start trying to find a unique experience. Keep the (party) bags from forming under you eyes with our exciting party experiences. If your child is a history, archaeology or theatre fan, give them a party to remember with Ignite Lights interactive workshops. Whether they want to dig up dinosaurs in Outer Mongolia, enjoy a magical fairy tea party, or stage their very own mini-play, our workshops come complete with authentic artefacts and props to make their special day very special indeed. You'll be the talk of the playground for all the right reasons and, with our optional extras including party bags and prizes, you'll find the experience hassle-free.
