OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“No two shows are the same, because the actors constantly work with the way the audience reacts. It is funny and grabs the pupil’s interest.” – Dagmar Rozier, Het Assink Lyceum, Haaksbergen, NL

We have been working in European schools for 30 years and are famous for presenting workshops that students really enjoy and learn a lot from.

Teachers love them too! All our workshops offer a great way to practice speaking English and learn about literature in a challenging but non-threatening environment.

A Big Wheel show is one that both teachers and students will always remember. You will all leave the room energised and full of ideas for that next lesson!

We have a selection of workshops to choose from, now booking for 2017-2018!

English Language

Our English Language shows are up-to-the-minute in their use of multimedia references, parody and games. We have recently introduced a new workshop, London Crazy, aimed at intermediate to advanced students. It’s been a wild success!

English Literature

Our English Literature workshops introduce students to new work, themes and topics, as well as helping them to appreciate and analyse the novels and plays they are already studying.

As part of The Great War Project 1914-1918, we are continuing to offer two newworkshops at primary and secondary level respectively, which
have proved a huge success not only in the UK and Belgium but in non-combatant countries, such as Holland, Switzerland and Sweden. Meaning in the Mud, for secondary students, is based on the War Poets, while Spies Lies and Pigeons, aimed at primary level, looks at communication in World War One.
