Theatre Workshop was founded in 1991, by Brian Twiddy and Yvonne Peacock, both professional actors who are committed to working with Primary schools. Theatre Workshop tours extensively in Primary schools throughout the country. We deliver a high quality performance combined with an entertaining and informative workshop.

Theatre Workshop celebrates 25 years of touring schools in the UK. The Company is committed to delivering high quality performance, combined with an entertaining and informative workshop.

The experienced actor will perform short scenes from the selected period; then, using drama, freeze-frame, and role-play the children will be encouraged to interact with the performer, and recreate some of the scenes. The Create History workshop produces work that lends itself to being used for assembly projects.
