About our work
Cranked Anvil’s Director, Paul Dunn, has worked in primary and secondary schools, in an educational entertainment capacity, since 1995.  He knows extremely well the demands on the teacher in a modern school, and the need to link very closely any external company’s production with the requirements of the school curriculum.

As well as that, he is very aware of the tight budgetary constraints put upon schools these days.  He has worked for many years as company manager for various Theatre in Education companies, and has worked closely with teachers, headteachers and bursars throughout that time.
Paul has a hands-on approach to every single schools project that Cranked Anvil produces, so schools can be assured that any show or product that they buy from us will be of the highest standard – that’s a personal assurance from Paul himself!
As well as that, we have all relevant public liability insurances and DBS checks in place.
