Founded in 2012, The Drama Hut are a leading provider of on-site and online workshops for primary schools, 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).
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.
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!
Through improvisation, role play and performance-based work, children experience a subject through one of our workshops. 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.

“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
"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."
