Against The Clock

Our Original All-English Escape Room Drama Workshop
Workshop Focus: Confidence Building / Teamwork / English Practice
60 mins and 90 mins options

Working under time pressure, students must complete a range of challenges as a team.


Every student will have at least one challenge that they must instruct the group to complete

- the extra challenge? All in English!


In this workshop, every student has their moment to speak out in front of the group. We often see the more confident students in the group encouraging and supporting the shyer students as they are all aware of the importance of completing each challenge.


If the team manage to complete all of the challenges, solve the clues and open the padlocks, they might just get to keep the sweet surprise hidden in the last box!

Language Focus:


  • Giving instructions

  • Adjectives - describing objects

  • Present continuous tense (e.g. I am playing...)


We can adapt tasks to cover a language focus your class have been working on.

Drama Skill Focus:

  • Confidence building

  • Improvisation

This workshop can be easily adapted for different levels of English abilities - we will contact you before the workshops and will adjust the content to match the needs of your class.

"Get the group to stand in order of the month they were born in."


"You have just been voted in as the country’s next prime minister. You have 1 minute to tell the class what you will do for them. Ideas: Bring pets to school / Look after the Environment"
