Story and Drama classes

Hoglets - The Little Matchstick Girl

Hoglets – The Little Matchstick Girl shadow puppet class

Hoglets runs exciting drama and storytelling classes for babies and infants.

Hoglets classes bring imaginations to life, turning stories into adventures. We take drama and performance skills, mix them with some games, craft and songs and boil them up into a bubbling bowl of delicious creative fun.

Classes begin with a story performed by Mama Hoglet herself, actress Gemma Sharp, followed by fun games, songs, craft and advice on the methods used, and how parents can take them home and make them their own.

Hoglets classes are designed to help towards the key prime areas of learning set out by the Government Early Years Curriculum – communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development.
