We believe the stories of the ancient world belong to everyone.
Education and Outreach
Our founders all knew first hand how studying classical & historical subjects at school can broaden horizons and help make sense of modern society. Since our foundation the company has been committed to supporting the study of the ancient world wherever it is being taught.
We also believe that theatre can bring the ancient past to life in ways a classroom cannot, so we developed our educational outreach programme. We can now offer workshops, talks, and even performances of our latest productions tailored to needs of your school, college or society.
If you are interested in arranging for the company to visit you, or for more information, please contact us here (or by emailing email@example.com) and quote “Outreach Request” in the subject of your message.
As part of our outreach project we're able to offer a number of workshops, each that can be tailored to suit.
Bespoke, tailored workshops for your needs
We never seek to profit from educational programmes and are committed to making our outreach work as accessible as possible.
That’s why we aim be more affordable per hour & participant than many other more established groups doing work like ours. In fact, we've decided FIT Theatre will only ever charge you what a visit costs us.
For example, to deliver a standard two hour workshop for about 20 participants typically costs us £195 plus travel expenses - so that’s the fee. For larger groups or longer sessions the cost might increase, but only when absolutely necessary, and we can often offer reductions for smaller class sizes.
Ultimately, we're always willing to discuss what we can achieve within your budget, so don't be put off by prices and please reach out whatever your circumstances.
Our Collaborators and Friends
The Iris Project
The Iris Project is an educational charity introducing the languages and culture of the ancient world to UK state schools in order to enrich the curriculum. It was founded in the belief that the opportunity to learn about Classical languages, literature, histories and art should be made available to all, regardless of background, and that learning about these fascinating subjects can be a vital tool in promoting learning across the school curriculum in UK state schools. They run a wide range of initiatives in state schools across the country, focusing especially on children in socially excluded inner city regions, and also run projects which introduce Classics to adults in city communities.
