Have fun exploring Shakespeare and build your student's speech and language skills with a day of workshops for Primary students


Our Primary Play Days are the perfect way for your students to explore Shakespeare, language and drama in greater depth. These workshops can be based on any one of Shakespeare’s plays, and work towards a performance at the end of the day, which you might choose to film, or simply allow pupils to enjoy the experience of staging their own performance. We will look at and stage key scenes and characters in the text through practical play and exploration of Shakespeare’s language.

A Primary Play Day is ideal for Primary Schools wanting to grow their students’ confidence in speech and language, or simply looking for an end-of-term treat.
