Large Group Drama for primary schools (KS1 and KS2)

Whether it’s a special assembly or storytelling for the whole key stage, our large group drama activities are designed for up to 120 children and led by one facilitator. They provide excellent value for money and allow large numbers of children to come together to learn through drama.
