Education

The theatre is pleased to welcome those who are interested in learning more about the theatre, backstage areas, heritage and more. Our Education and Youth Engagement Officer is a fully qualified and experienced Teacher with 10 years experience in Drama, English, and Additional Support Needs.

Learning is not reserved solely for children and young people, the theatre is also pleased to welcome community groups and individuals.

We also understand and appreciate the importance of continuing professional development for Teachers and are here to support with bespoke packages whether it is with a group workshop in a particular area or 1:1 consultation on engaging reluctant learners through different kinaesthetic approaches.
