The Great Fire of London
School Workshops - The Drama Hut
All of our workshops are available online and can be live streamed into classrooms, halls and homes. COVID related cancellations are available at short notice as long as workshops can be rescheduled for later in the year.
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.
With over two hundred schools visited last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.

Why book The Drama Hut - The Great Fire of London workshop for your school?
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 through learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
During this workshop our professional actor will take on the role of Thomas Farriner, the King’s baker, from Pudding Lane, who survived the fire to tell the story of what happened during those three fateful days. Discover with help from him and later Samuel Pepys, the famous diarist of the time, what it was like to live in London before and after the fire. During this workshop the children will, create 10 second pictures from the period, act out a poem depicting the events of those three days during which the fire raged through London, with movement and song, become the fire itself and debate with Samuel Pepys how the fire changed London forever and discuss how architecture could be improved for the future.

What size groups do you cater for?

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.
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools.
