A Character in the Classroom
Bring history to life with our innovative ‘living history’ programme, a brilliant resource for Key Stages 1 & 2.
A Redbridge Drama Officer, in costume and in-role as an historical character, will spend an hour with your children in the classroom, school hall or at the Drama Centre.
We have four characters to offer:
