Drama workshops for Museums & Libraries

For Libraries

We have a number of fantastic story workshops to inspire children to fall in love with stories and reading.

Each year, we create a new workshop for the nationwide Summer Reading Challenge. Please click on the link to the left for more information on this.

Why not celebrate Black History Month with our Stories from Africa or A Caribbean Story workshops? The Rainbow Fish or The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark sessions are the perfect addition to your World Book Day events. Our Shakespeare's Life and Times workshop has been especially popular with libraries in the last few months as a cracking way for KS1 and KS2 children to be introduced to the Bard. And our Early Years' Story Hunt workshops are a fantastic way of introducing 3-5 year olds to storytelling.

Do get in touch to discuss what we can bring to your library.

"I have seen many storytelling sessions in the library but with this session I particularly liked the way children had an active part to play in telling the stories. We would be more than happy to hold such an event again in our libraries."
Ann Cartwright, Chiswick Library, Chiswick


For Museums

Our workshops can bring history to life, whether the children are meeting a historical character like Florence Nightingale or roleplaying life as an evacuee in our Second World War workshop. We can offer sessions after hours too - this Halloween we visited Dulwich Picture Gallery during their Haunted sleepover with some spooky Quest for Guy Fawkes workshops! 

Recently we had the privilege of visiting the Guildhall Art Gallery where we performed our Return of the Romans show in their real Roman amphitheatre! If you're interested in having our show team come to perform in your museum or gallery, please do get in touch. 

See our range of history workshops here:
History workshops for 5-7 year olds
