About Freshwater Theatre Company: Delivering Drama Workshops, Storytelling and Show in Schools, Museums and Libraries Since 1996

Welcome to Freshwater Theatre Company’s website!

Established in 1996 by Carol Tagg and Helen Wood, who have a wealth of teaching experience, Freshwater has become one of the most respected and established drama-in-education companies in the UK. Working with over 150,000 children each year, we enjoy long-lasting relationships with hundreds of the schools we visit. 

We have been inspiring, engaging and educating children in nursery, primary and secondary schools for over 20 years. We also work with libraries and museums, engaging children in the latest reading challenge or bringing history to life through drama.

We are passionate about the power of the arts to provide valuable learning opportunities for your children, allowing them to express themselves creatively whilst embedding subject knowledge.

Feedback from teachers shows that Freshwater consistently provides stimulating and memorable experiences of the highest quality, engaging and motivating children to learn.

We hope to hear from you soon.
