Here at Tell Tale Hearts we value play and creativity as essential educational tools. We use a combination of theatrical techniques; drama, intelligent materials, evocative music & play to inspire and enable each child’s learning.

We have over fifteen years’ worth of experience in running one-off workshops; touring shows; inset training for staff; consultancy programmes and residencies. We have worked for many local authorities; education action zones; creative partnerships; individual schools; Museums & galleries (including Eureka! Museum) and also universities.
