COMING SOON. Contact info@theworkshop if you would be interest in hiring us to run either a one off or series of sessions in your school, community centre, club or wellness centre.

We work with Children’s Centres to provide a range of activities for families and young children. To access these free activities families must be registered with the relevant children’s centre. The workshops we are able to offer are as follows – 

My First Dance

A fun and creative class for toddlers to dance with their grown up. This is a great session for early development. As well as developing physical skills and spatial awareness it’s great for improving listening, responding to instructions and sharing with other children – many of the skills they will need at school. Expect movement, games, songs and storytelling to spark the imagination.

Suitable for 18months – 4 years (babies welcome too)

My First Theatre

Story, character and play-based games, stories and fun for toddlers and their grown-ups. This is a great session for early development. As well as developing physical skills and spatial awareness it’s great for improving listening, responding to instructions and sharing with other children – many of the skills they will need at school. Expect movement, games, songs and storytelling to spark the imagination, as well as a range of themes to cater to all children’s wants and needs.

Suitable for 18months – 4 years (babies welcome too)

Are you looking for a fun activity for your group or organisation?

YOUTH MUSIC REGIONAL WORK 

Innovate>Test>Embed ‘by, for & with Young People’

The Workshop believes that music should be for all young people, who should be central to their own musical journeys. 

We are working closely with music deliverers and partner organisations across the region to push boundaries and break down barriers to participation, using an ‘innovate, test, embed’ approach which explores authentic ways of developing quality music provision ‘by for and with’ young people.

This is a strategic programme of work, which sees The Workshop and Garage working nationally with the National Foundation for Youth Music and 12 national colleagues, all working towards a ‘musically inclusive’ England.

The Workshop strives to keep music participation fresh, engaging and relevant, enabling young people to develop musically, personally and socially and helping music deliverers to develop their practice in new ways.
