“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson

Bindlestick Theatre Company was born out of the idea that everyone accesses information differently, has different learning styles and through the arts, we can make learning inclusive.    

We use a range of techniques from our backgrounds in Theatre and the Arts industry, to explore topics, texts, poetry, storytelling, Shakespeare, maths, science, PSHE, history and geography through drama, role-play and a structured programme of games and activities specifically tailored to aid confidence and self esteem.    

We also offer Theatre-based skills workshops, from Mask, Clowning and Circus, to Musical Theatre and singing sessions.     

Our creative residencies programme, sees us working with an organisation for a longer period of time, on bigger projects, such as plays, projects or specific schemes of work. This could mean a week, regular 'termly' visits or anything else agreed upon.   

Every learning journey or adventure we create is cross-curricular and enhances and enriches social skills, teamwork, speaking and listening and of course, most importantly - 'unpacking their imaginations'.
