The Drama Hut
At the Drama Hut, we believe that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. In providing an on-site service to schools, we offer a cost- effective alternative to expensive school trips, helping to bring history workshops being taught in the curriculum to life. Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.
All our team are 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).
Why are The Drama Hut a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
This workshop will work extremely well for any children studying the Romans or Celts as part of their curricula. During the session they will meet Queen Boudicca, experience Roman formations, and be ready for battle, as well as understanding how the Gods, Goddesses and religion played such a strong part during these times.
We are able to work with up to 30 children at any one time for a minimum of 60 minutes. We offer special day rates for multiple classes and can deliver two different topics to different year groups on the same day which works well for smaller schools, helping to manage tight school budgets.
All we require on the day is the school hall or similar to work in and a member of staff to observe or join in the session/s.

Examples of workshop topics available: Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Mayans, Romans, Stone Age, Saxon and Viking, Victorians, WW1, WW2, Great Fire of London and Florence Nightingale.

"The whole exerience of using Drama Hut, from beginning to end, was very professional. Emails were responded to promptly and gentle reminders sent (which is appreciated when school is so busy). Lillie did a fantastic job throughout her visit. Her engaging and friendly manner hooked the children from the outset and she managed to keep them (including some challenging children) engaged and focused throughout, particularly since it was an extremely hot day at the very end of term. The children were thrilled to be able to show off their knowledge and learning of the Romans and this session really allowed them to consolidate everything they already knew, alongside learning new and interesting aspects of Roman life. They have insisted on holding Roman drill and marching over the past two days, using the commands as taught by Lillie. They were full of praise for the session and it was a lovely way to end the term. Thanks to everyone in the office for helping to organise the visit but especial thanks to Lillie for all her hard and enthusiastic work."
★★★★★ Year 3/4 teacher, Sacred Heart Roehampton Catholic Primary School
"Boudica! was great at enthusing the children and used a great range of drama and games to teach some key points about Roman history. A great day, thank you."
★★★★★ Patricia, History co-ordinator, Orleans Primary
"As always, the children loved the session and were engaged throughout. As the school's History coordinator, I firmly believe that drama is essential for children to gain a real understanding of the past. A Drama Hut session gives them the opportunity to do this in a fun and creative way."
★★★★★ Year 4 teacher, Granby Primary School
"It was a fantastic day and all the sessions were thoroughly enjoyed by all the children. I would whole heartedly recommend this provider. Thank you!"
