Educational & Workshops
The possibilities are endless when it comes to educational experiences and we work closely with our clients to ensure they get the best possible options for a competitive price. Here are just a few popular examples:
Theatre Workshops for Foreign Students
English is a richly creative language that students from around the world want to learn and master. Our partner Theatre Workout has developed a fun workshop to help foreign students gain confidence and learn to speak English in a more creative way. Workshops are full of games and exercises based on acting, storytelling and devising theatre techniques to improve their communication skills.
Shakespeare’s Globe Workshop & Globe Tour
Every day, hundreds of students come to the Globe to take part in our Lively Action workshops, lectures and theatre tours. Lively Action takes its name from John Marston’s preface to The Malcontent in which he apologises “that Scenes invented, merely to be spoken, should be enforcedly published to be read” and asks that the play “be pardoned, for the pleasure it once afforded you, when it was presented with the soul of lively action”. This encapsulates the spirit at the core of all Globe Education’s work – that plays should be explored practically rather than read passively as texts.
City Finance Walking Tour & Bank of England
The Bank of England Museum tells the story of the Bank of England from its foundation in 1694 to its role today as the United Kingdom’s central bank. The historical displays include material drawn from the Bank’s own collections of books, documents, silver, prints, paintings, banknotes, coins and photographs. There is a display of gold, including Roman and modern gold bars, alongside pikes and muskets once used to defend the Bank. Computer technology and audio visual displays explain the Bank’s present day role. Groups need to pre-book.
Jack The Ripper Walking Tour
The story of the Whitechapel murders is one of the last great unsolved mysteries of the world. It is also one of the most fascinating and blood thirsty tales you will ever hear. It all happened in London in the year 1888. By taking the Jack the Ripper Tour the group will walk those very streets, and as the shadows get longer, perhaps feel some of the fear. The group will be taken were the victims were last seen alive, and where they tragically died. Tours are available in English but also foreign languages on request.
West End Retail Design Walking Tour
On this tour you will see some of London’s most exciting retail interior designs as well as hearing the stories behind them. Start in Piccadilly, walk through some of the boutique shops in Soho and end up in some of Mayfair’s hippest stores. The tour of beautiful and unusual handpicked retail spaces is the ultimate masterclass in shopping, store design and visual merchandising. The tour includes as great a variety of stores and restaurants as it can. It shows a range of different aesthetics from both independent stores and chain stores, ranging from deeply cool designs to classic styles to kid friendly stores.
