Youth and Family Groups

Our 45-50 min workshop sessions will make your visit a complete day out. Led by our staff, your group will get hands on with objects and interactive activities to explore topics that complement your boat trip.

We cover a range of interesting topics including the wildlife of the waterways, the Industrial Revolution, working boats, rocks and fossils and more.

To see the workshops we currently offer, please download our Workshop Sessions information pack. 

Are your young people working towards an Arts Award? Many of our workshops already contain elements that could help them on their journey, and we’re happy to adapt sessions to include new things to support this.

Not working towards Arts Award, but would like to be? We are an Arts Award centre with an in-house adviser who can assess awards at Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver levels, so get in touch with us if you’d like to know more about how we can help your group to achieve one of these awards.

Talks and Tours

We can arrange a more formal presentation or talk on any of the topics listed in our workshop sessions pack for an adult audience. We're also happy to talk about our own history as Dudley Canal & Tunnel Trust. Talks can take place in our learning room or in other locations around the site depending on the size of your group, so get in touch if you've got something particular in mind.

We can also arrange for specialist tours of the caverns highlighting areas of particular geological or historical interest - please get in touch with us to discuss what would work for your group.
