A Victorian Christmas
School Workshops - The Drama Hut
The Drama Hut believes that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning and was created in order to provide an on-site service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life. Through drama, role play and improvisation, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.
With a wide range of topics to choose from, let us create a unique learning experience for your school.
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 (Child Protection Policy).
Why book The Drama Hut for educational workshops into your school?
Have Flora Hopkins, a Victorian carol singer visit your school this Christmas. Let her share her tales and experiences of the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge from the classic and much loved Charles Dickens’s, A Christmas Carol. Using improvisation, song and role play, Flora will guide the children through this fun-filled festive session.
During the workshop the children will:
Be introduced to the Victorian era
Explore the wide social gap between rich and poor
Look at Christmas traditions and entertainment
Learn a traditional Victorian song
Meet Scrooge and explore the themes raised in ‘A Christmas Carol’
Improvise and create the characters from the story
Create their own version of A Christmas Carol
What activities are available during group visits?
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.
What size groups do you cater for?
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.

“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.”
