PHM offers an engaging Learning Programme, providing opportunities for early years, schools, colleges, universities, adult and community groups, and families to learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all.

Ideas worth learning about

Groups can book a range of sessions from interactive storytelling, drama performances and artist-led workshops, to creative writing and walking tours.  Follow the links below for further information on all sessions.

We can tailor all sessions to meet the needs of your group or particular topic – just ask!
