We are enthusiastic about building long-term partnerships with local schools and community groups by creating opportunities for all.

We offer a host of student resources and always seek to tailor what’s offered to suit their specific needs.

Schools Newsletters

For up-to-date school performance and workshop information, see our latest newsletters below:

Teacher's Packs

Teacher's resource packs to aid lesson plans and activities before and after performances are available to accompany some productions. More information or links to the packs can be found on the show’s page.


For some productions, workshops are available either at The Hawth or your school. For a list of current workshops available, see the school newsletters.

Pre and Post-Show Discussions

Where possible, we can arrange free discussions with performers, writers and directors for the benefit of both students and general audiences. These offer a chance to understand the creative process behind the production and put your questions to the company. For a list of pre and post-show discussions, see the current school newsletters or brochure.

Flexible reservation periods are available for school bookings. We also offer one free teacher’s ticket for every 10 pupils in your group. To book your tickets, please contact the Box Office on 01293 553636.
