The Take Away Theatre Company visited Whithorn Primary last Friday afternoon June to present a most enjoyable performance of “A Dash Through Dickens”.

Garlieston Primary came and this was the first time our pupils came together as part of the new partnership between the schools.

The presentation was in the style of BBC’s Horrible Histories’ programme and was an entertaining and informative journey through the works and often extraordinary life of Charles Dickens. Pupils were amazed as some of Dickens’ best loved characters, such as, Oliver Twist, Ebeneezer Scrooge and Mr Pickwick, were brought to life. As well as learning about Dickens and his books, pupils also gained an understanding about what it was like to live in Victorian Britain.
