With changing guidelines from government, The Drama Hut are committed to supporting schools through this challenging time and will not charge for any sessions that need to be postponed due to COVID19 even if we get the call the night before! In addition, all of our workshops are now available online as well as onsite, giving you complete flexibility on how sessions are delivered. Our online option is live and interactive viewed ideally on a large screen in a classroom or school hall and also allows any children to log in to from home, if having to self isolate. Please do contact us on for further information.

At the Drama Hut, we believe that children should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created to provide an affordable service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life out of the classroom . 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.

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.”
