Steven Kenyon (Teaching and learning Consultant in Primary English and History) will be joined by David Brookhouse and John Meredith (Heritage Learning Lancashire Managers) and Lancashire Historical Fiction Author, Susan Brownrigg, for this exciting, immersive full-day course.

Delegates will get the chance to meet 'Olaf the Viking' and hear his stories of Viking raids. They will learn about the Silverdale Hoard and have the opportunity to create their own claims and accounts (stories) about the past.

Using a range of local artefacts and excerpts from her mystery novels, Susan Brownrigg will share how she has turned her passion for Blackpool into a series of popular mystery novels. Steven will be drawing everything together to help delegates grasp how to enrich and deepen their pupils' historical knowledge through work around stories and storytelling within the history curriculum.
