Teacher Resources

Our aim is to ensure that your festival experience is a rich cultural encounter for both you and your class. We want you to engage, to question, to be inspired but mostly to have a fun and memorable experience.

We have compiled a collection of guides and resources to help teachers, carers and group leaders to prepare for and enjoy the festival.

Activity Packs

Each year, Baboró identifies certain shows as suitable for designated special needs schools and groups. The Recommended Packs are designed to assist teachers and carers to prepare their students for their Baboró experience. Designed for each performance, the packs include information about the venues, seating, lighting, sounds and nature of the show.
