Schools Programme

Richmond Cultural Education Partnership (RCEP) provides learning workshops in school, either as standalone sessions, or in conjunction with a visit to the museum, The Georgian Theatre Royal or The Station in Richmond.

If you would like to bring your students to Richmond, booking a half day would typically allow up to two sessions in two locations.  A full day would allow you to take part in activities at all three venues.  However, you might choose to stay in one location for the half day and extend the session – it’s very flexible, and we’ll work with you to make the most of your trip to Richmond.  We can also provide somewhere for you to eat your packed lunch!

Half day: £60 plus VAT

Full day: £110 plus VAT

The sessions are delivered by a member of our specialist Education Team.  RCEP has been created through Heritage Lottery Funding.
