The Drama Hut
At the Drama Hut, we believe that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created in order to provide a cost- effective service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life through on-site history workshops. 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 all aspects of Victorian life as part of their curricula.
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.
What activities are available during group visits?
A selection of the topics we cover include: Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Mayans, Romans, Stone Age, Saxon and Viking, Victorians, WW1, WW2, Great Fire of London and Florence Nightingale. We can also provide bespoke workshops at schools requests.

Up to 30

“We have used The Drama Hut on several occasions to help enrich and inspire the children’s experience of the curriculum. All facilitators have been well prepared and able to use their dramatic skills to deliver well-pitched and interesting workshops. Children are always excited after the session and are able to speak confidently about what they have learnt.”

"The whole day was excellent - very hard to critique or improve."
★★★★★ Teacher Year 1, Alpha Prep School
"The workshop was great and the children loved it. It was certainly apparent they had retained the information when we carried out a unit of work about poor Victorian children. Lilli kept them entertained throughout and kept their attention - not easy with a group of five to six year olds! Teachers enjoyed it as well."
