An exciting new programme of creative and practical workshops for families starts this autumn in the Clore Learning Centre at the National Theatre.

FAMILY DAYS take place once a month and include a mix of drop-in activities and ticketed workshops. They are designed for children aged 6–12 and adults to enjoy together.

Discover the skills and secrets behind productions at the National Theatre...

  • Have a go at designing a costume 
  • Learn how our actors perform realistic fights on stage
  • Find out how music is used in NT productions and try your hand at composing
  • Meet some of the team who work behind the scenes to bring NT productions to life

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Each adult may only be responsible for up to three children.
