This page provides details of the events that The Sand House Charity has arranged and others that it will be involved in. Where the event is an illustrated talk at the request of a host group (for example, at a local history society or a Women’s Institute branch) we suggest that you make contact with that group to check that they allow visitors, before attending. Where the event has been arranged by ourselves and is open to anyone, we shall make that clear within the detailed event description.

Events that are potentially subject to cancellation or postponement due to the Coronavirus outbreak have been omitted from the list below, pending further information.

The Sand House Story - A live, online, child-friendly Sand House talk - Friday 5 June, 2pm

This live, interactive, online talk about the history of the Sand House is aimed at 8 to 11-year-old children (upper Key Stage 2), but would suit KS3 also. It is a home schooling opportunity for all you parents and carers who are looking for an unusual history subject to share with your children. It is accredited by the Children’s University.

The talk will take place using the Zoom video conferencing tool, so you will need a device to which you are happy to download Zoom (if you don’t already have it). Questions can be asked in real time using Zoom’s built-in chat facility. There will be lots of Sand House images displayed – in fact, it will be mainly images – and the talk is expected to last around 45 minutes.

Please email for details of how to join in.
