“It’s about engaging children so they really enjoy History and they want to learn more, that’s what it’s all about.”

My name is Adrian Chapman. I created my company
Blast From the Past’ as I am passionate about inspiring young people and developing their interest in History.
I provide affordable History workshops for Primary schools portraying some of the most important characters and events in History. I use a unique combination of drama, storytelling and practical activities which are often based outside the classroom.

I work closely with teachers to ensure that I cover all the curriculum elements required and am happy to adapt workshops in order to provide a truly bespoke experience.
I have a background in education having taught in Cornish schools for over 25 years and I have a range of acting experiences, including work for the BBC and appearances on West Country Television.
I create memorable days which fire the imagination of pupils and place them within touching distance of the past.
