Drama workshops to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice 1918

To commemorate the centenary of the armistice of WW1, we have updated all of our WW1 interactive drama workshops, designed to help your children discover more about the events of the Great War (1914-1918) and how it finally came to an end in 1918. Through a series of drama activities, your children will be transported back 100 years.

We have two incredible sessions for you - slightly different to suit your needs.

The Quest for the First World War...

Commemorate the centenary of the Armistice 1918 as your children are transported back to the time of the Great War to explore life in the trenches, the point when the Allies began to gain ground, and celebrate the end of the war for this important anniversary.

With one class of up to 30 children this hour long session features our experienced 'Time Traveller' teaching your pupils to time travel too!

First World War - Large Group Session...

With up to 120 of your children - listen to real life diary extracts from a World War One soldier. 

This amazing account will allow your children to witness the hardships faced in the trenches but also offer a glimpse of the camaraderie and friendship that grew up amongst the troops. Hear firsthand about life on the front line, rations, letters from home and the long-awaited, astounding news that armistice had been signed and 'all hostilities should cease'. This is an hour long session including interactive elements.

Don't miss out in the first two weeks of November - help your children understand this momentous significant event in world history.
