Theatre in Education for the Creative Classroom (indoors and out)
As well as booking entertainment for end-of-terms parties, fundraisers, school fayres and events we are now very pleased to be developing a programme of educational based workshops centred around historical events, myths & legends or ethical & environmental issues, appropriately named 'Theatre in Education' or TIE for short.
These workshops aim to enhance the school curriculum by delivering creative and interactive sessions by experienced and costumed leaders (all DBS checked) that will engage children and facilitate learning in a relaxed and imaginative way.
All workshops are delivered with props and artefacts for the children to handle as well as costumes to try on and class-room notes for further exploration.
We can currently offer the following workshops - more details of individual workshops will be uploaded soon;
Piracy: A 45 minute show and interactive horrid histories type workshop - KS1/2

Feedback from our Make it Wild Sessions:
Brilliant session! A great way to spend an April showers afternoon! Amazing location (Abbey House Gardens), great value for money, very friendly and relaxed yet controlled session, resulting in a guilt-free Mum and two happy boys returning home - thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you for yesterday’s activities, the boys loved the day and were very keen to show off their work to ‘Daddy’ - it was lovely to meet you and I hope we can attend another Cotswold Party session soon,
