The Garage is an experienced provider of education activities for schools. We can tailor make a range of courses, clubs, workshops, professional touring theatre trips and other opportunities to suit your needs.

Activities are designed to enthuse and excite by giving young people a taste for participating in creative activity whilst developing transferable skills. Our team are experts in working with young people, particularly those who, for whatever reason, find it more difficult to engage.

Activities are based around dance, drama and music. Our aim is to take away all the hassle of managing your activity; we contract professional artists and tutors, complete risk assessments, gather evaluation and feedback information for you when we are finished. We can even embed nationally recognised Arts Award accreditation into projects if you wish. All you need to do is provide the young people.
