A Play in 3 Days is a workshop offering children aged 7-11 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.

Throughout 3 days the group will create a play inspired by Roald Dahl’s The BFG. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, discuss and devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for family and friends to enjoy. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.  

Students can let their imagination run wild as they not only create their version of The BFG through ensemble work but they can explore their own Dream Country with our very own BFG puppet! Will they escape from the Bloodbottler? Will their ‘Whizzpopping’ get them found out? Will the Queen of England help them in their quest to imprison the other giants? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved in this short time; who knows what strange and wonderful dreams and characters that can be created, and what worlds their audiences will be transported to?

Not only will they received guidance and help from our Facilitators but they will be given props, costumes and basic set in which to create the world of their play.

It will be 3 days of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends.

Due to limited spaces available, it is recommended that parents/guardians book early to avoid disappointment. Early Bird and Sibling Discount available, simply email us at for discount codes and booking information.

All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.


We offer a session of pre-workshop and/or post-workshop care for working parents. During these sessions, the children will have access to the playground and arts and crafts to keep them occupied, and will be cared for by our experienced childcare providers.

AM Session: 8.30 am to 10 am

PM Session: 4 pm to 5.30 pm
