"The way that Histrionics weave the travel to school message into famous stories from history is ingenious. A totally unique and exceptional brand of entertainment." - Modeshift

Histrionics offer enthralling and entertaining Education Programmes for Museums, Schools and Visitor Attractions.

Ongoing Projects

Workshop History Days

Histrionics create enthralling and immersive experiences for an entire school, Key Stage or Year Group. Using high-energy set pieces, humour and facts we can deliver 21 workshops on the entire history curriculum.

Assembly Shows

Our trademark shows where pupil participation is encouraged. Individual volunteers or the entire audience join our actors on their journey into the past. Ideal for topic launches and special events like World Book Day.

Education Programmes

We are enthusiastic about museum education. As such we are regularly asked to create and perform in compelling, dramatic narratives that support amazing collections and engage students and visitors.
