Through this difficult time, we at Hobgoblin are passionate that children must not miss out on the fantastic experience of live theatre in schools.


Covid-19 brings many challenges, and we understand that some schools are limiting visitors into schools over the coming term.


So, thanks to an Arts Council England Emergency Grant, we have been able to produce filmed versions of our shows so children can still experience our shows and teachers can still use Hobgoblin as a valuable resource  in a topic.

Learn a little more about this theatre in education company and the wonderful people who run it!


Hobgoblin Theatre Company in a nutshell.

We have high quality filmed performances for the following shows available NOW:


"Prehistoric Park" (STONE/BRONZE/IRON AGES)

"The Curse of the Mummy" (ANCIENT EGYPTIANS)

"Perseus and Medusa" (ANCIENT GREEKS)


"The Wall" (ROMANS) - available from the end of September.

All of our history shows come with our brilliant resource pack, NORA’s VLOG!

Join our time travelling Vlogger Nora as she travels all over the world (from her dad’s time machine in the basement, of course) to different eras of history.

We are also offering "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears" (EYFS/KS1) - a fantastic 25 min play accompanied by a 15 min drama workshop led by Goldilocks herself!


This also comes with a work pack of drama activities and ideas for a traditional tales topic.


The cost is £75 (ex.VAT) for the performance, workshop and drama work pack.

"Best Christmas Ever!"


Don’t let Covid-19 ruin your school’s Christmas theatre experience this December.


If you can’t have a live theatre company visit your school this Christmas then we have the answer! A 60 minute digital show loosely based on "A Christmas Carol", written specifically for these dark and difficult times to cheer us all up and bring some Christmas smiles into your school.


This film has all the usual Hobgoblin fun, energy and silliness and is fantastic value at just 50p per head* (ex.VAT)
