Roald Dahl consistently tops the list of most popular children’s authors and Theatre Exchange have run experiences looking at classics such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach.

These workshops work best with children between Year 2 and Year 6, and provide a fully immersive experience, as children act alongside Theatre Exchange actors as they investigate together, the strange and enchanting world of Roald Dahl’s imagination.


Creative days

Theatre Exchange are committed to offering children and young people a variety of experiences and can provide tailor-made activities for you. These can range from a 30 minute session to a full day or even a weeks’ worth of workshops to coincide with Arts Week, World Book Day, Healthy Living, Citizenship, or any other event you wish to mark.

Our drama based workshops are often inspired by popular children’s literature and stories, and, therefore, make an ideal addition and starting point to encourage children to read for pleasure and explore their imaginations.

In line with promoting a healthy, active lifestyle, Theatre Exchange also offer Creative Movement workshops for younger children, and dance workshops covering styles such as Street Dance, Bollywood, Contemporary, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Cheerleading or even Hip Hop.
