Schools – TakeOff Festival

TakeOff Festival returns 21-26 October 2019

A warm welcome to you and your school as we introduce another jam-packed week-long festival of world-class theatre for children and young people!

This year we are bringing even more shows and high-quality cultural experiences for schools across the region, to venues in Durham and across the North East, to inspire young imaginations, widen aspiration, and help children gain an appreciation of the arts.

We know this will be the best year yet.

Why book in your class?

We will do the following to make it as easy as possible for your class to attend TakeOff Festival:

Arrange return travel from your school to the venue-Meet and greet you from the bus

  • Provide a risk assessment for your visit-Organise packed lunch areas or other activities to extend your visit
  • Our shows are specifically targeted to meet the learning and developmental needs of your children
  • We’re providing schools the opportunity to give their pupils an enriched deepened experience through an introductory Arts Award Discover
  • Teachers go free in line with ratios
