If you have yet to book, our sponsor Lyfta, are offering pupils and children, and of course staff, the opportunity to go to the theatre tomorrow, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 December 2022.
With budgets and purse-strings stretched to breaking this year, many children might not have the opportunity to experience festive outings; so Lyfta is offering a virtual theatre trip instead!
Join a #LyftaLive lesson and travel to Helsinki in Finland to the Opera and Ballet for this exciting end of term treat.
Students will go behind the scenes with this exciting virtual school trip and explore the interactive 360° spaces, including the main stage, orchestra pit, ballet studio and much more.
These live lessons provide an excellent way to build social and cultural capital in the classroom and will provide pupils and children an experience of the theatre to which they may not otherwise have access.
