Our work in schools

Maybe you're a teacher? Or member of the PTA? Or simply an enthusiastic parent? You want to include high quality live music to enrich your school's life and inspire pupils? We can help! 

We can provide:

  • Musicians to perform a short concert/demonstration for any age group. We can bring musicians of any instrument, all DBS checked, all very experienced at presenting to children, and all of the highest quality.
  • Revolting Rhymes LIVE! Combine live classical music with incredibly imaginative theatre and mix a cast of 9 with Roald Dahl's poetry and Paul Patterson's music and you have a winner for the whole school!
  • A Christmas show combining beautiful live music with superb acting, puppets and more. A treat to bring Christmas alive...

Revolting Rhymes LIVE!

Reviews from schools about Revolting Rhymes LIVE!

"This carefully managed blend of music, audience interaction, surprises, poignant moments and belly-laughs ensured that every child (and adult) remained under the performers’ spell throughout. In a word: magical!" Headteacher, St Stephen's Primary School

"A fantastic way to enrich our wider curriculum" Headteacher, Ubley Primary School

"A unique opportunity to engage with high quality live music and drama" Teacher, Larkrise Special School


A fabulous event for the whole school as Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes are brought to life! Enter the world of Miss Riding Hood as she journeys through the forest, watch as three pigs build their houses and hear all about a Tummy Beast…

6 musicians and 3 actors form the cast for this spectacular telling of the famous Revolting Rhymes. The performance includes the Revolting Rhymes - Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and from Dirty Beasts, The Pig, The Tummy Beast and The Crocodile.

With words by Roald Dahl, music by Paul Patterson and Martin Butler, and directed by Petra Schofield, this is a fabulous production for schools! Experience what it’s like to be up close to a flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn and piano played by professionals, and watch as the live action unfolds right in front of you to tell the dramatic stories…
