Take your school to the Front Line without taking them abroad.

This year your students can experience Anglia’s Christmas Truce tour without having to leave the UK. We have adapted our UNIQUE fully-guided programme so you can still witness that singular moment when, albeit for a brief period, fighting along parts of the Western Front actually ceased, and still be back home by Christmas.

This tour combines:

  • Meet our Recruiting Sergeant keen to persuade your ‘men’ to sign-up for the British Expeditionary Force
  • Spend time with our Drill Sergeant learning drill & weapons handling
  • Listen to our Medical Officer explain how battlefield wounds, injuries and illnesses are treated
  • A guided visit to Sittingbourne Cemetery

Culminating in an opportunity to witness a re-enactment of the Truce itself played out by our team of actors each in the persona of a man who was in the Ypres Salient over Christmas 1914. It is a truly moving experience!

Meeting exam board specifications. Our tour content is mapped against the major examination board specifications for KS3 to KS5 students.
