The training workshop is designed to help you organise a theatre club at your school with a view to participate in the festival in March.

It will be held on Wednesday 16th November at the University of Bristol at 2 - 4.30 pm. This will give participants the confidence and numerous ideas to develop a drama club in school. Training sessions are delivered by two enthusiastic French drama teachers who have years of experience in running French theatre workshops for children and adults.

You and your pupils will then have 4 months to prepare a short piece on the pre-determined theme, which they will perform on stage at the festival on 25th March 2017. There may be opportunities for subsequent informal meetings in between.

Cost: £35 per teacher
