Thank you for today’s workshops. We all (children and adults!) enjoyed the sessions. They were the perfect ‘wow’ way to launch our topic and the children all learnt lots of key facts which will give them a great basis to build their knowledge on. It was a great refresher for me too on some of those drama techniques. .

Thanks again and hopefully we will see you soon.



What makes Britain great ? Florence Nightingale Workshop


Thank you for a really great morning.  I was amazed by how much they remembered.  The children absorbed so much because the learning was delivered in a fun and engaging way.  Will hear from us again!

Hi Veronica and Alison,


Thank you so much for such a wonderful workshop today – the children loved it and learnt so much from the experience.  Personally, I feel like they learnt a lot more than previous trips to the museum.

I will definitely be booking you again for more workshops in the future!

Thanks Ladies!


We thoroughly enjoyed your visit (as always!). The children have remembered so much and are loving further learning within the topic, having had such a wealth of information at the onset. We will, no doubt, be in touch soon.

Thanks again!

The team at YBR are fantastic! I have used their drama workshops many times over the years and they are a popular choice among all classes at Bowker Vale. The ladies captivate the children from the word go and they always want more! If you're looking for an enthusiastic way to entice your children in their topic, then YBR are your people. Thanks for all of the laughs over the years!
