Why not try a Jigsaw Holiday Workshop as an affordable solution to keeping your children busy and active? Jigsaw provide fun and exciting performing arts activities that will build your child’s confidence.
Holiday workshops for children
Students are divided into appropriate age groups and take part in dance, drama and singing activities that lead to an end of the week show. There will be a balance between show rehearsals and fun activities and games that will ensure your child has a memorable holiday with an opportunity to make new friends.
Escape the rain with an Easter or half term workshop or take to the stage in a fun-filled summer school. Our holiday workshops are hugely popular amongst children who attend our weekend schools as well as children who are joining Jigsaw for the very first time.

Holiday workshops for 3 - 5 years
The two hour sessions are full of fun packed, exciting performing arts activities and games. They offer a taster of the full day programme and the week leads to a mini performance. Perfect for building confidence, making new friends and keeping your child busy during the school holidays.
Holiday workshops for 5 - 16 years
Each day will begin with ice breaker games followed by a physical and vocal warm up. Students will then work in smaller groups for dance, drama and singing activities. As the week progresses, the children’s work is pieced together to form a show for family and friends at the end of the week.
What do children need to bring?
- A packed lunch that doesn’t need refrigeration. Lunches will be stored in a cool dry place but refrigerators are not available. We recommend you use an ice pack.
- Plenty of water to keep hydrated.
- Students should wear clothes and shoes appropriate for movement.
Jigsaw shows are devised around the students to make sure that all children are contributing to the final performance. Building the children’s confidence and ensuring they all feel valued is at the centre of all that we do. Family and friends will be invited in to watch the performance at the end of the week.
