If your school has a booking with me for the new 2021-22 school year, rest assured that it will remain in my diary as a confirmed booking unless otherwise instructed by the school.

Currently, visits to the Quayside such as the Great Fire of Gateshead and Newcastle are not available due to the current closure of venues that we would attend as part of the trip. I am offering in-school sessions for the schools that had booked these visits instead. 

My usual in-school workshops are going ahead, as planned. In order to help schools to understand the measures that I am taking to limit risk of infection during sessions, my Covid-19 Hazard ID document is available on request. Simply email me at if you would like an up-to-date copy.

In due course, I will be sending the Covid-19 Hazard ID document to every school that has booked a session with me. I realise that all schools will have different measures in place. Please do read through the document and liaise with me well in advance of any sessions so that details, potential issues and appropriate safety and hygiene measures for your school can be worked out.

This is an unpredictable time. Schools that have to cancel sessions because of Covid-19-related guidelines or legislation will not be held to That History Bloke's Cancellation Policy. If, however, you know that this will be the case for your school, please do let me know at the earliest possible opportunity in order for me to be able to offer the date to other schools.

If you have any questions, then please contact me directly via email at
