We will be holding FREE 2 hour teacher sessions on Thursday 20th of April from 2pm to 4pm and on Thursday 27th of April from 4pm onwards. They will explore the possibilities of visiting the Tin Shed in the summer term.
 If you are interested please contact Emyr Price – 07966174179 or 01554823908 or deprice57@hotmail.co.uk This is a free service as the project is funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund. Please also check out our website www.tinshedexperience.co.uk or the Facebook page Tin Shed Experience.

The Tin Shed Experience is a small 1940s museum based in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire. The museum guides tell the fascinating stories of local people involved in WW2 and also has a victory garden with an Anderson Shelter and Workman's Cottage. The museum is filled with memorabilia from the 1930s and 1940s and sessions focus on tales about Make do and Mend, Evacuees, Dig for Victory the Blitz and other WW2 experiences. Visits will help pupils with a number of important educational skills but it is the storytelling that adds most to the experience and the local tales linked to the uniformed mannequins. There is a covered barn area that can be used for a variety of research activities and for lunch breaks.

Laugharne is very popular with school groups due to the Dylan Thomas attractions and the nearby Castle which could also be visited as part of a day trip. It would also be possible to combine your visit with the nearby WW1 Trench Experience at Morfa Bay in Pendine. We can host and guide school groups of around 30 pupils for the small entry charge of £3 each. Tours in Welsh can also be arranged.
