Local history for ESOL learners
We work in partnership with curriculum managers at Hackney Learning Trust to develop courses, where ESOL learners use the museum to enrich their learning of the English language. For more information please visit the ESOL Advice Service where you’ll find help and support.

Our Stories – art workshops with Advance UK
Wednesdays, 1-2.30pm, free, materials provided
A weekly, creative workshop for people with learning disabilities and their families and carers, inspired by the museum and organised in collaboration with Advance UK.
Sometimes, special guest artists help run workshops, sharing their skills and expertise with the group, such as Sunara Begum, who said, “It was such a great experience to share our work as artists with such an active, engaging and creative group of individuals. They were all so highly receptive and open to new ideas and new possibilities. Keep on doing what you do.”
To find out more about joining, as a participant or guest artist, please email Sarah.Johns@advanceuk.org.
Music with Maddy
Singing, dancing, instruments, puppets and creative fun for babies and children under 5 and their parents, guardians or carers. £5 per child/£2 for siblings.
Email Maddy to book your place. Please note that Music with Maddy does not run during school holidays.
Where possible, we offer free tours for local groups interested in learning about Hackney’s unique history. The content and timings of these tours are flexible depending on the aims and needs of the individual group.
