The Minack offers a wide range of workshops for schools and groups.  Subjects can be tailored to ages from early learning to 16+.

Our workshops are offered free of charge to West Cornwall Schools.  For other groups a fee will be payable. 

Please email us for details of all our workshops.

Classic Workshop

Our classic workshop for groups of up to 30, includes a backstage tour and a series of theatre skills games.  Working in small groups with experienced practitioners, you will create and perform your own short play.  If they wish, the group leader can specify a subject, or just leave it to the students’ imagination.

Multi-school Workshops

Ask us about putting together a multi-school workshop project, giving your students a chance to perform on the Minack stage. 

Shakespeare Project

Local schools get together to explore Shakespeare.  Each group creates and shares their interpretation of a segment from an agreed play.

Dance Project

Our professional practitioners work in schools to create a dance piece.  The groups come together to perform and share their work on the Minack stage.

Writing for the Theatre

We work with Story Republic to offer workshops on playwriting to encourage and develop writers both young and grown-up.  These workshops are delivered by practitioners from The Writers’ Block

We can sometimes offer special workshops linked to productions from the current Minack season.
