Following the demonstrably successful Once Upon A Festival, we are excited to announce the continuation of our new children’s arts programme, The Doorstep Theatre Festival. The festival is designed to make high-quality arts activities accessible to primary schools by lessening the restraints of rural isolation and the financial implications that come with visiting an arts venue.
The project will provide schools with the opportunity to host a performance in their hall.
Following the performance, schools will have the option to take part in enrichment workshops led by our team of highly-skilled facilitators, or to visit Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds for drama, technical, craft and story-telling workshops with other participating schools as part of the extended programme offer. Both offers come at a heavily subsidised rate to schools. Teachers from all schools taking part will also be invited to a CPD session at Theatre Royal to explore how the themes within the performances and workshops can be carried into the classroom.
Keep an eye on this space for updates on the next festival and programme!
