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 affordable on -site history workshops 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.
All our team are trained both in facilitation and performance. They have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion through learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Chi
Why are The Drama Hut a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
Our WW2 workshop will transport the children back in time and let them experience what it was like to be an evacuee during WW2 for themselves.
We can 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, 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 the session/s.
What activities are available during group visits?
Through improvisation, role play and work with text and song we bring curriculum topics to life. With many subjects to choose from here is a selection of just some of what can cover: 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.”

"The children learnt so much from the workshops and have not stopped talking about "Polly " and being evacuees. Thank you for making the day a huge success."
★★★★★ Lucy, Year 5, Manorfield Primary
"It was a fantastic workshop which thoroughly engaged our cohort. Some disengaged boys were hooked by the experience and produced some incredible work on the back of it."

"The children were engaged in their learning from start to finish. They participated really well and Anna was brilliant at bringing all the different characters to life. I would highly recommend these workshops to all year 3, 4 and year 2 children. Thank you so much!"
