Why book The Drama Hut - Victorian Workshop workshop for your school?
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 up to three different topics to different year groups on the same day which works well for smaller schools, helping to manage tight school budgets.
If on-site, 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.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
During this workshop our professional actor will take on the role of Syrie Barnardo, the wife of Thomas Barnardo, who established the first children's home in Victorian times. Together with the children, she will travel back in time and experience the harsh life or the poor in a typical workhouse, run by the formidable Mr Bumble. Discover how Victorian England was transformed through innovation and the Industrial Revolution and meet Queen Victoria herself!

“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.”
Marie Hedges, Orleans Primary School, Middlesex
Reviews from Schools visiting The Drama Hut!
"The whole day was excellent - very hard to critique or improve."
Brentwood 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."
