Suitable for ages 7-12

Offering children the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play inspired by the Brothers Grimm Tales, this workshop lets their imaginations run wild as they develop characters and create their version of the story through ensemble work.  With so much to explore, who knows what strange and wonderful characters will be created, and what worlds their audiences will be transported to.

Safety Information

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our priority. Here's what we're doing to help keep everyone safe, and what you can do to help.



In line with government guidelines, all staff and visitors must wear a face covering when inside our buildings. Read our list of exemptions. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If no tissue is available, use your elbow.


The number of visitors permitted in our spaces has been reduced. Although it is no longer mandatory, we ask that visitors give people space where it is sensible or requested.


Please do not visit Lakeside if you or anyone you live with is feeling unwell or have a loss of smell, temperature, consistent cough or loss of taste.


Hand sanitiser is available at regular intervals throughout our venues. We recommend you make use of these upon arriving and leaving our venue.


The frequency of our cleaning throughout our venues has been increased, including toilets and other facilities.
