Description

Greenwich Theatre is one of London’s premiere off-West End theatres, presenting a year round programme of high quality performance. With a new show every week every season is guaranteed to have a mix of curriculum texts, new writing and cross-artform performance, all presented by some of the country’s finest touring theatre companies.

A visit to the theatre will always include a full theatrical performance, often the only chance to see a particular show in London, and may also include Q&A sessions with actors, talks from theatre professionals, practical drama workshops and theatre tours.

 

Why is this venue great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

As a mid-scale theatre we present high-quality professional touring productions, but with a friendly, personal service. We can present bespoke packages to include talks with theatre companies and tours of the building, and regularly offer education packs to accompany productions.

 

What does a typical school trip or educational visit include?

A typical visit includes access to a performance. Everything else that we can offer, from talks to tours to workshops, can be prepared according to the needs of the group.
