VIP tour of Newington Green Meeting House for local teachers and educators
October 15, 2020 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM at Newington Green Meeting House
We’re inviting local teachers and educators for a VIP tour of the Newington Green Meeting House!
The Newington Green Meeting House is a free, accessible heritage space perched on the north side of Newington Green.
It has long since been a hotbed of radical ideas, and once played host to the women’s education pioneer Mary Wollstonecraft as well as several figures from school history curriculums, such as some American Founding Fathers.
It continues to be a place of social change today as the home of non-religious church New Unity.
Thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Meeting House has been restored and is now open to the public.
We’ve recently launched an exciting set of community outreach, events and educational programmes. From ready-to-go assemblies to summer holiday craftivism projects, our educational output is broad in scope and stimulating in nature.
We’d love teachers and educators in the Hackney and Islington areas to join us on Thursday October 15th at 5pm for a one-hour VIP tour of the newly opened building.
On this socially distanced tour, you can:
Meet our Community and Learning Manager Amy Todd, an experienced educator and heritage specialist who is leading the project’s schools outreach programme
Find out what the project can offer your students and colleagues in the form of resources, assemblies and CPD
Learn more about our “Get Crafty” competition and how your students can be in the running for a prize worth £150
Go back in time by sitting in what was once Mary Wollstonecraft’s very own pew
Explore the building’s Victorian extension, which formerly served as a Sunday School
Enjoy wine, soft drinks and nibbles in the historic Richard Price room
