The Dong with a Luminous Nose Workshops

To enhance your pupils educational experience around a show visit to The Dong with a Luminous Nose, we are offering two in-school workshops that can be booked as part of a linked offer when you buy show tickets. 

Drama Poetry Workshop

Description:  After students have watched the show we will come into school and deliver a follow up workshop which will explore innovative approaches to reciting poetry – focussing on intonation, tone and volume. By the end of the workshop, students will have created a whole-class recital of the poem which can then be shared at an assembly or with parents and/or used as stimulus for creating their own independent nonsense poems.
Curriculum links:  Poetry – reading and discussing a poem (themes, language, structure), learning a poem by heart, performing a poem to convey meaning.
Age:  This workshop is suitable for KS2/KS3 students (age 7 or over)
Time Needed:  1.5 hours
Capacity: Up to 30 children per workshop
Location: Your school (somewhere with suitable space to allow movement)
Cost: £95 + VAT per workshop (this price does not include show tickets)
How to book: Book your show tickets via our Box Office (020 7226 1787) and specify that you would also like to add on a workshop. Someone from our Creative Learning team will then contact you to make arrangements.
