Teacher's Q&A with Carolyn Bradley, hosted by Esther Richardson
Tuesday 5 May

This Q&A with Carolyn was a session for teachers wanting help and advice on teaching Crongton Knights to GCSE or A Level students as a live theatre production or as a devising stimulus. It was a great opportunity for teachers to have their questions about the production answered, from a creative or educational perspective.
