World Book Day Workshop
School Workshops - 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 an affordable on-site 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.
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 are The Drama Hut a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?

During the session and with the use of improvisation, role play, song and movement, the children will:

What activities are available during group visits?

Here is a selection of the topics we 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.

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.
Is there first aid on site?
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
“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.”
