The Kings Theatre works with many schools in the Portsmouth and surrounding areas.

We will work on a one to one basis with you and your pupils to understand and engage with them either via tours & talks on the importance of this historical venue or introducing drama & the theatre to their learning.

If you’d like our team to come and see you or would like us to discuss ideas with you, please do not hesitate to contact us on 023 92828282 or email

Tech Tour & Workshop, February 2023

“The group were really pleased with the content, they loved being able to try all the different things and go everywhere backstage. Tech manager was great at explaining everything and answering any questions. The value for money was great for the amount we got to do in the time we were there. The staff we met during the tour and workshop were very helpful and attentive, and the booking process was easy. We would definitely return for another tour or workshop!”
M Stisted – Brave Island

History Tour & Physical Theatre Workshop, March 2022

“The content of the workshop was great for our girls as they love physical theatre, and the workshop was very inclusive. The tour was perfect for our girls, and they were very engaged.  Lauren was an excellent tour guide; she pitched her talk exactly at the right level and was very patient dealing with the questions. Kerry was great with the girls, and they were on board from the start. Thank you for a lovely morning.”
