Covid-19

All of our workshops are available online and can be live streamed into classrooms, halls and homes. COVID related cancellations are available at short notice as long as workshops can be rescheduled for later in the year.

At The Drama Hut, we provide on-site and online history workshops, bringing subjects to life. For many schools, this is a cost effective and convenient alternative to expensive school trips. Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.

Choose from a vast range of topics or let us create a bespoke workshop for your school. All we require on the day of our visit, is either a clear space to work in and a member of staff to observe or join in the experience or if online, we can reach you from our our zoom platform or your own school portal.

Why book The Drama Hut - History Workshops workshop for your school?

As the pressure on schools to watch costs and the logistics of taking children on trips increases, we believe that we offer a viable and exciting alternative. All our team are professional actors, trained both in facilitation and performance. They have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion for learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
