Benin West Africa

England, Scotland, Wales


From 900AD to 1897 inhabitants in Benin, West Africa prospered. During 997 years of power, they created a thriving empire. This interactive workshop will take up deep into the Kingdom of Benin, to explore their rituals and way of life. Let's explore how they flourished as a trading nation, meeting their terrifying gods along the way!

Your class will…

  • Explore the timeline of the period, the people who populated it and their roles in society.
  • Explore the achievements of an early civilisation.
  • Explore the Gods they worshiped and rituals they performed.
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
