Seeing a West End show and a Shakespeare play at the Globe - both wonderful experiences for all English and Drama students! Our selection of performances, visits and workshops will complement their classroom learning with fascinating insights into what goes on both on stage and behind the scenes.
A real highlight of this tour is the visit to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. The behind-the-scenes walking tour truly immerses pupils into the world of film-making and gives them the opportunity to discover authentic sets used in the making of the Harry Potter™ film series.
