Play In A Day

One Hull of a Day was created for the Hull City of Culture 2017!  This Play in a Day is for up to 35 KS2 or 3 pupils. The pupils will work with a facilitator throughout the day and have the opportunity to share a short performance to an audience of their choice at the end of the day.

Situated on the northern bank of the Humber estuary, the city of Hull has been awarded the prestigious title of UK City of Culture 2017...

From its early beginnings in the twelfth century, Kingston Upon Hull is steeped in history and culture. Learn how it gained its Royal Charter status as a city, the significant part it played in the English Civil War and its decimation in the blitz. Explore a variety of its myths and legends, from mermaids to sea monsters. Meet some of Hull's famous faces from the past like William Wilberforce and his part in the abolition of slavery.

All this and more in our Play in a Day, 'One Hull of a Place'!

"What a fantastic day- it completely exceeded my expectations.  I honestly didn’t think it would be possible to get all of that done in just one day!  The children absolutely LOVED it!  The play content enhanced what we have already been learning and introduced new ideas, all done in a completely child-friendly way.  Chris formed excellent relationships with the children, even in such a short space of time.  He was energetic and enthusiastic and made the day really fun.  Parents, staff and other children commented on how brilliant the finished product was!"
