Creative School Trips
School Trips @ Theatre Workout
While Covid-19 remains at large we are unable to run our award-winning West End Workshops or School Trips, which add so much value to student's education.
But all is not lost!
WE CAN deliver our multi-award-winning drama programmes in schools and online, providing outstanding educational content in the comfort and safety of your school AND WE CAN also plan school trips from June 2021 onwards, by which time we hope the non-covid world will begin to return.
Students have missed out on a lot this year and we are doing everything we can to mitigate that and ensure trips can go ahead at a later date. Please get in touch or visit our website for more information.
Thank you - and stay safe!

We have 15+ years experience organising trips for schools from around the world, visiting all parts of the UK, organising over 300 trips a year (in normal times). So, whether you are looking for a short day trip to a local museum or a two-week whirlwind tour of the UK, we can research, co-ordinate, manage and deliver the entire trip for you.
