Curriculum Subject
Fun and Creative Performing Arts Trips

Primary school drama and performing arts trips are a wonderful way to enhance a child's imagination and develop their linguistic skills. Drama can be an excellent way to introduce KS1 pupils to topics in curriculum subjects such as history or English, while KS2 students can get involved in drama and performing arts as part of a theatre workshop to help them grow their social and verbal skills.

Secondary KS3 and KS4 trips to learn about Drama and Performing Arts are enriching experiences. Your students can soak up knowledge about stage presence, dialogue, performance texts, theatrical skills and how to evaluate work. Venues or workshops can give your students an extra perspective from their standard day in the classroom.

Below you will find a wide range of fun and creative day out venues that can cater for your next drama and performing arts school trip. Learning outside the classroom is great but sometimes it may be more suitable to bring the experience into your classroom with some of the talented drama workshop providers we work with. They can help you engage with your students and tailor their sessions to your individual learning objectives.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Performing Arts experience for your school trip.
