Hoglets offers cross-curriculum workshops and performances for EYSF, KS1 and KS2

Hoglets Theatre writes, produces and tours intimate, energetic and accessible theatre designed specifically for early-years and primary aged children.

We also run engaging, exciting and imagination-fuelling drama workshops – which can be paired with a performance or run standalone.

Performances and workshops include:

  • Physical theatre
  • Storytelling
  • Puppetry and puppet making
  • Craft and artistic expression
  • Live music and original songs
  • Group interaction

We take children (and their teachers) on engaging adventures, underpinned with important themes of personal development, creativity and self-expression.

Workshops and performances can be tailored to current curriculum themes or created entirely bespoke.
