Our children learnt so much throughout the day… the activities were very age appropriate, all the staff were very welcoming, calm and patient with our children. We all absolutely loved it and we can’t wait to return!

Alternatively this energetic and interactive OUTREACH workshop is the perfect introduction to the incredible world of Shakespeare’s stories.

Chose either A Midsummer Night's Dream or The Tempest as the focus.

  • Take part in an interactive storytelling session
  • Discover key characters and magical moments from the play
  • Seek out and collect a variety of props hidden around the classroom to create the world of the play
  • Enjoy a lively music and movement session with ribbons, bells and songs as an energetic finale!

To encourage the children to continue their journey with Shakespeare and storytelling at home, they will make a prop to take away. These include headbands, wands or fairy wings for A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a miniature boat or a musical shaker for The Tempest.

Duration: 1.5 hours
