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.

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.

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.

Anything else?

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.
