Hello and Welcome!

 

I’m Lauren, a producer, writer and presenter, curious about the world, forever asking questions and fascinated by people, history, and the human mind. I produce and present educational films that showcase our incredible historic sites for a family audience, working with museums big and small including, Old Royal Naval College, The Golden Hinde and Shakespeare's Birthplace, amongst many others!  

 

Live Projects: In addition to my on screen work, I also write and produce live workshops and shows for families and schools in museums and cultural organisations across the UK. Clients include: The National Army Museum, Kids in Museums, London Transport Museum, Museum of London, Museum of London Docklands, Kew Gardens, Strawberry Hill House, London Museum of Water and Steam, Knebworth House, Orleans House Gallery, Garden Museum, Harrow Arts Centre and Royal Academy of Arts. 

 

YouTube: My YouTube channel, Lauren Learns History, was named Channel of The Week by The Week Junior Magazine just five months in, received funding from Arts Council England in 2022 and was shortlisted for Best Documentary at The Performance Film and Media Awards 2022.  I have produced 25 documentaries on the channel to date, filming with 25 museums and historic sites!

 

Our films have taken me on countless adventures, where I’ve met a myriad of historical characters! I’ve travelled back to Victorian school, spent a day on board the Golden Hinde, become a WW1 Tank Gunner and uncovered the grisly truth of Victorian surgery! I’ve met Shakespeare’s father, Jane Austen, Brunel, Churchill, Queen Victoria, a 17th century smuggler and many more!

 

The Little Historians Magazine:  In 2022 I joined the team of the brand new children’s history magazine, The Little Historians Magazine, as a writer. Here, I have the privilege and enormous fun of visiting iconic historic sites as the magazine’s travel journalist as well as interviewing historical characters in my sequential time travel stories!

Lucy Stiles,

The Old Royal Naval College

'Lauren was very collaborative and creative, so it was easy to whittle down ideas in order to create something informative yet interesting on one aspect of our site’s varied history. It was fun shooting the video, and it was great to be able to incorporate one of our own team members alongside the actor. '
