It is our mission to provide Workshops & Wow Days to work as a Topic Hook to inspire children to engage with the topic, love learning, reading and to be the very best version of themselves.
We work with teachers to ensure our workshops deliver material that is relevant, interesting and educationally inspiring for children in EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
We have been working with children since 2010, providing entertainment and education across the UK. Everyone at DanTastic Entertainment is CRB / DBS checked and fully covered with up to date PLI.
"We booked the superhero workshop for EYFS, Year 1 and 2 and it took place 2 weeks ago. Dan Tastic assured us that it was appropriate for this age range and my children were looking forward to it. Dan Tastic began the workshop by discussing weapons such as guns and knives. He then proceeded to show the children different types of weapons that superheros use to 'kill baddies'. He showed them scenes of violent hand to hand combat and gun fights and in one film clip a person was being strangled with a length of rope. When I enquired what rating the film clips were and whether they were appropriate for my class he said 'they are 12A films and I don't show them the really violent scenes'. I responded by saying that my children were only 4 years old so the film clips were not appropriate. He discussed the things he thought children needed to do to be smart; 'read books and listen to grown ups, if you don't do these things then you will be a dum dum'. He made the children jump by popping a balloon with an arrow and shouting loudly and abruptly. At one point he held the arrow to his head and then his chest and explained that if it shot him there he would die. He asked the children 'what would you do if a bad person came into your home or school and hurt your friends or family?' My children didn't respond so he answered 'The superheros will save you'. He chose children to model the superhero outfits and, without their consent, proceeded to put masks over their faces and touch their hands and arms. At one point he even lifted a child up (without any warning) several times to show everyone how 'strong he was'. The child in question looked visibly shaken. There were no Covid regulations or restrictions in place. I found the workshop completely inappropriate, with no apparent learning objective. My children were not engaged and a couple of them were distressed and cried. I pulled my class out of the workshop after 40 minutes as it was so awful. I would definitely NOT recommend this workshop or this provider, in fact I would actively warn against booking him at your school as it is in my opinion a safeguarding risk and he should not be sharing this material with young children. I reported my concerns to my headteacher as safeguarding lead. I wish I had known beforehand. DO NOT BOOK!"
"We were completely amazed with our workshops from Dan Tastic Education! Both Dan and his partner Em breathe life into education, making it captivating and exciting. They really focus on inspiring the children to learn, engaging the whole class with mind-expanding questions and taking them all on an adventure throughout the whole day.
We’ve had two workshops and are already discussing how many more we can get in this term! Dan Tastic Education really capture the spirit of the new creative curriculum. Absolutely fantastic – keep up the good work!

"We had heard great things about Dan Tastic Education’s work shops, but he exceeded our wildest dreams! An incredible workshop for our Reception, Y1 and Y2. With such a wide array of activities, props, stories, historical items and games the children were entirely engaged from start to finish by Dan Tastic! Perfect for our Historical topics and the children still talk about him months later. Incredible value for money and we will definitely be booking him again next year!"
