 The Thames Project 

A large-scale participatory performance project working with Y4 classes

from LDBSL Academies Trust

In partnership with ten schools and funded by the LDBSL Academies Trust

Each school receives a professional performance of 'The Sailor and the Mudlark'.

Inspired by the techniques introduced in the performance and the theme, each year 4 class works with a Peoplescape drama practitioner over a term to devise their own Thames performance.

This highly successful project structure can be replicated on any theme suggested by schools. Please get in touch if you'd like us to create a project with you

A compelling storyline and talented performers.


The children were captivated - they were so impressed.


Children worked as a team to create a very mature performance.

A very enjoyable experience for staff and the children.

Working with Peoplescape has been a joy and was an excellent way of learning. Children discovered inside themselves skills and strengths that they didn't know they possessed.

Thank you so much for all your support and guidance with the Thames Project. It was an amazing thing to be part of.  On a personal note, you treated my grandfather’s story with so much respect and appreciation – a massive thank you for it all!
