We do not lay down ‘stipulations’ on our clients, we try and operate a smoothly and in a way that does not interrupt the running of the school or event.

All we require from our clients is a 13amp (standard) socket, a coffee, and space to work. Our show times are flexible to suit YOUR needs, and our shows are ALWAYS pitched at the correct level for our audience.

Auriga Astronomy Invite a Knight

Invite a Knight provides a live presentation of a fully armoured Knight from either the Norsemen\'Viking', Saxon, Norman or Crusader (late Norman) period.

The Knight will explain in an interactive and lively way what life was like in the 'period' why people behaved the way they did, what weapons were used and how armour protected warriors of the time. He will further explain the role of ladies/girls in that time, and dispel many of the myths that surround the early medieval period.

there are opportunities for the audience to handle real weaponry and armour of the time, and understand how heavy it was. there will interactivity with 'fake' safe weapons for the audience to understand how battles were fought.

a VITAL part of these shows is a question and answer session at the end (as well as questions during the show).

Once again we are extremely flexible in our timings, and our shows can be delivered to a few or a few hundred.

We can also attend outdoor fete's and parties to give our talks and be available for photo opportunities.

We Carry £10m PLI for ALL our activities, are Fully DBS Enhanced checked, and our electrical equipment is routinely PAT tested.
