Theatre Bolt-on

If you're thinking about seeing a show whilst staying at our London or Stratford-upon-Avon hostels we can recommend a great way to make the event a little more special. Try our bespoke drama workshop, delivered by the awesome folk at The Theatre Workout or Dreamshed Theatre.

The Theatre Workout, London’s leading workshop and events company, offer bespoke 2-3-hour drama workshops which can be tailored to accompany any West End play or musical. While Dreamshed Theatre offer workshops all linking to the work of Shakespeare in the Bard’s hometown.

Our Theatre Bolt-on requires a minimum group size of 25.
