School Workshops - The Drama Hut

Home / School Workshops

Please note: Outreach Workshops only - We visit your school! We can visit schools in East Midlands, Midlands, London & South East, East of England, South West, North, Yorkshire



At The Drama Hut, we believe that schools should have ready access to affordable drama workshops in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created in order to provide a service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life. Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.

Current School Trip Offer

Following the unforeseen closure of schools, we have adapted our workshops to be able to offer schools an online experience. Workshops will last approximately 45 minutes and include a pre recorded short video which will be forwarded ahead of the scheduled session and include some optional 'prep' for children. We are offering sessions at a reduced price of £100 plus VAT whilst schools remain closed and will review this as things change. We remain committed to providing support to teachers in enhancing school topics in a fun and educational way during these difficult times.

“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.”
