Adult learning and tours

If you organise visits for adult groups, such as a local history or U3A group, we can give onsite talks and tours for up to 50 adults.

We can also give a walking tour for about 45 minutes of Bournville village green. Our talks are on the history of Selly Manor, the development of Bournville village and the Laurence Cadbury Collection. We are happy to combine talks and tours to suit your requirements, please ask us. Prices range from £6 to £12 per head and can include tea and biscuits or cake.

We can also give offsite talks to groups at your meeting venue if you prefer, please contact us to discuss what we can do for your group. Our prices depend on the size of the group and the distance our staff need to travel, but typically we charge between £40 and £60 for an offsite talk.

During the Covid pandemic we are unable to deliver our talks and tours in person but we would be very happy to arrange a live digital version of our most popular talk The Cadbury Connection: Selly Manor Museum and Bournville followed by a Q+A session, with a member of our knowledgeable team.
