A performing arts school trip to London offers your students the opportunity to really experience the city’s famous West End!

If you’re looking to motivate and enthuse your performing arts students, then a tour of one of the world’s most famous theatres and seeing a West End show should do the trick!

With over 40 theatres and a variety of museum and tours available incorporating aspects of acting, lighting, sound, costume design, make up and front of house (to name but a few!), London really is an ideal destination for showing your students where performing arts can take them! And you could even team up with your school's English department, to make the trip cross-curricular.

A fabulous trip, the organisers couldn't do enough for us. The students loved it and the itinerary planned was so varied that the students were amazed by the amount of experiences that they received in such a short amount of time. — Kirk Hallam Academy, June 2019
