Join us at Orleans House Gallery to explore the art of tour guiding! The session will include:

  • Interactive workshops on developing your own public tour
  • Training in engaging storytelling and public speaking techniques
  • Learning how to engage young visitors with gallery activities
  • Advice on volunteering opportunities
  • Exploring the history of Orleans House Gallery

The day will be led by the Orleans House Gallery team and professional storyteller, street performer, and theatre maker Nick Cassenbaum. Nick’s work encourages tour guides to think creatively about how they engage with spaces, places and people. He has collaborated with the Royal Court, Soho Theatre and in 2017 collaborated with Battersea Arts Centre to create an award winning tour programme.

This Session is FREE but booking is essential. Tea and coffee will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch.

This session is open to West London residents only (Richmond, Hounslow, Kingston, Wandsworth, Hillingdon, Ealing).
