Theater & History UK

How it works​

Theater & History UK is a program mainly developed for U.S. citizens with a special interest in the subject matter. Reflection and discussion will be key to making sense of your many site visits and connecting to life back home. Your trip leader will lead daily discussions, sometimes casually over meals and sometimes more structured.

Process

Please complete our online form and we’ll reach out to answer any questions you have and set up a phone call if you’d like. There’s no fee to complete the form but once you fill it out, you’ll have the ability to reserve a spot on the program by paying a $250 deposit towards the program fee.
