Hoglets drama workshops in action

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.

What happens in a Hoglets class?

Classes cover a huge range of exciting drama skills including:

  • Songs
  • Games
  • Dance
  • Movement
  • Craft – including Shadow Puppets and Masks
  • Voices
  • Creating characters
  • Creating your own stories
  • and lots more…


Our classes are designed to trigger new ideas to captivate, fascinate and delight your little Hoglets.
