From Ginificent

GINIFICENT have kicked off their 2016 tour of A Christmas Carol! At just £495 this is a fantastic resource for schools and much easier than a trip to the theatre. The production really brings the book to life to support GCSE studies. They have also announced they will be touring in the spring with Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Romeo and Juliet. All productions are approximately 1 hour and come with supporting material and a post-show talk. For more information please visit their website or email

"Simply wonderful, the show and post show talk has really helped our year 11 students"
