Presenting an enjoyable and participative approach to history. History Up Close brings the past out of books into a hands-on experience. 

Formed in 2000 AD, History Up Close 
consists of several dedicated living-historians, collectively having some 21 years experience in the areas of blacksmithing, costuming, music, dance,  swordplay, arms and armour, wood working, maritime history, 
food and cooking.
We bring all this and our enthusiasm to share an interactive and educational approach to history, whether it be at schools, libraries, public events or functions. 

School Incursions:

See our photos of school displays or go straight 
to our incursion packages for more information.

We have a range of activities to help you reinforce teaching or as a tool to introduce a new area of learning to your students, from ancient societies through to medieval, primary through to secondary levels. 
Our activities are designed to assist you with VELS. 
The activities focus on the history aspect of the humanities domain while making connections across the curriculum into dimensions of other domains. 

Public Events:
From supplying a colourful historical backdrop through to characters who will interact with your audience and beyond. Music or swordplay can be provided in many historical periods, from gladiators, to pirates or knights competing in tournament style combat.
