About The Children's Time Travel Festival
The Children's Time Travel Festival was born through a recognised need for high quality history based drama at primary level, and a passionate belief that the remarkable stories of those who lived through the First World War still resonate powerfully one hundred years on.
The festival has seen our performances in large scale non-theatre spaces: Imperial War Museum North and Manchester's historic Victoria Baths.
With an acclaimed scheme of work written by John Doona and Emma Bramley, participating schools will use drama to tell the stories of history through the lives of real people - lives that your children will have the chance to inhabit and experience through carefully constructed imagined experience. Experience that we will open up and support your own staff’s delivery. Through their participation in the project your staff will develop their expertise in the delivery of a compelling drama approach; expertise which they will be able to transfer to other subject areas and to other staff across your schools. Through your participation your school will be developing its own in-house drama specialists.
