The Kings Theatre works with many schools in the Portsmouth and surrounding areas.

We will work on a one to one basis with you and your pupils to understand and engage with them either via tours & talks on the importance of this historical venue or introducing drama & the theatre to their learning. We also have weekly classes for those who are home-educated.

If you’d like our team to come and see you or would like us to discuss ideas with you, please do not hesitate to contact us on 02392 82 82 82

“Dr Barrett and myself wanted to write to let you know we have just spent the most magical morning at the King’s theatre with year 6. The physical theatre workshop really engaged and inspired the girls and the leader managed to bring out such talent amongst even the naturally shy pupils. The addition of Edwardian actors around the theatre space really brought the experience to life. Very impressed!”

– Miss Cunningham & Dr Barrett
