Education > Creative Learning with Birmingham Hippodrome
By creating new experiences and crossing cultural boundaries within our local communities, Birmingham Hippodrome’s education team continues to offer highly innovative projects to a wide range of participants.
We can support schools to create an enhanced understanding of curricula subjects by creating innovative non-show related workshops and projects based on the workings of an active and busy theatre. These include science, environmental studies, and history discovery days in addition to numeracy, literacy and music. We also offer technical theatre days, careers days and can help design workshops for BTEC Performing Arts modules.
We are always happy to work with teachers to develop bespoke workshops, designed individually for your school.

Teachers! Feel the need for inspiration? ...a little isolated? ...at the end of your creative tether?
The sessions run late afternoon on weekdays and are open to teachers from primary, secondary and special schools. You will also be given the opportunity to stay and watch that evening’s production at a discounted price whenever possible.
Next meeting: Wed 8 October
