History Masterclasses are intimate, interactive opportunities to learn about history. Presented by an historian who has been picked for both their expertise and their public-speaking talent, History Masterclasses are intimate – no more than 20 or 30 people, giving lots of opportunity for interaction and delivering a really in-depth learning experience in a short space of time.
