Award-winning author, Ally Sherrick invites you to travel back on her time-machine to when there were no electric lights or flushing toilets, and danger and darkness lurked around every corner.

Virtual Visit Details

Calling all intrepid time-travellers!

Take a trip with Ally back into the past to discover how she became an author, learn what real-life famous events, places and people spark her ideas and hear her read from one of her books.

Choose from the murky world of plotting and spies in Black Powder, a dangerous wartime mission to save a piece of priceless Anglo-Saxon treasure in The Buried Crown, or the colour and intrigue of the Tudor Court in The Queen’s Fool (warning: hold on to your head!)

The session includes a 10 minute Q&A.

We pride ourselves on offering a reasonably priced service - even our most expensive visits cost < £3 per child (based on a class of 30). Each virtual call is priced according to one class dialling in, with discounted rates for additional classes joining the same call. You can book for up to 4 classes per virtual visit. Please indicate the number of classes that will be joining the call below.


As UK schools are currently closed and pupils are working remotely, the most effective way to host a virtual visit is for the teacher to schedule the call with their class and the speaker to dial in. Our speakers are used to dialling in to Zoom, Teams and Google Meet calls. Please indicate your preference below and we will be in touch with next steps.
