Theatre & The Forest - An alternative holiday club

At Outside Lives, we believe that learning through nature offers children an in immersive and sensory approach to understanding the world around them. We run a number of sessions in our woodland glade that enable children to learn fun yet important forest skills and take part in woodland crafts and activities, delivered by our forest school practitioners.

Our nature-based woodland activities are suitable for children between 5 and 12 years of age.

During the holidays, we run a series of sessions for children providing something different to regular holiday clubs. We combine these sessions with some forest school and some performing arts - we like to call this 'Theatre and The Forest'.

For session dates and availability - please see our events page
