Frequently asked questions

Click the questions below to reveal the answers.

How long do the workshops run for?

Each workshop runs for approximately 50 minutes. However, we like to schedule a full hour per session to allow time for the class to settle in.

Can we book just the one workshop?

You can, but our minimum cost is for a half day. So for the same cost, your school can enjoy three workshops instead of one.

How much are the workshops?

Please see here for the costs. You can book a morning of up to 3 workshops or a full day of up to 5 workshops.

How many pupils can we have in a workshop?

Each workshop caters for up to 30 pupils.

Do I have to have the same topic throughout the day?

Not at all! In fact, we structure our workshops so that they offer a great deal of flexibility to teachers. All of our topics are available throughout the year so we could deliver different workshops to each year group - all on one day.

What kind of space do you need?

A hall or studio is ideal as there is a lot of energy in our workshops: the whole class will be encouraged to move around. We can run a session in a classroom as long as it is clear space, has plenty of room for movement of the whole class and is clear of hazards.

What is your availability?

We have a large team of fantastic workshop leaders who work for us across London and the South of England. We can normally accommodate your preferred dates if we are given a few week's notice. However, even if it’s the next day, please do get in contact as we will try our best to get someone to you. If you are located in a rural location or in the South-West, we can still visit, but may require a little more notice.

Thank you to Joanna for making our World Book Day! Both children and staff were engaged and excited by the sessions. Joanna was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional. We have used Perform before and will definitely use them again.

Lucy was engaging, enthusiastic and had excellent behaviour management. She brought the sights and sounds of the Great Fire of London to life and it was the perfect hook into their learning.

– Ms. B Gardiner

Staff and children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and we’d love to have you guys back in the future. Many of the our staff commented on the pupil’s engagement in the workshop and were really impressed by the many, varied behaviour management strategies that were employed throughout the workshops. Exciting, entertaining and engaging, the workshops were well thought out and age appropriate. It has been great to see drama given more profile across our school this year and these workshops were the icing on the cake. Thank you

– Steve James

The children really enjoyed the session and using their imaginations. I loved trying different ways to show their knowledge like by creating a soundscape and exploring movements to show the event.

Cloe was fantastic as she adjusted each workshop for the different age of the children. The children were engaged and really enjoyed it. Our teachers were all very impressed.
