Our Experience

Bazil Grumble began in 1997 and offered one Children’s Theatre show, The Spirit of Christmas (a show which has been booked out every single Christmas since!)

In 1998 we opened our drama school, expanded our performance program and began the delivery of a selected group of creative arts workshops. In 1999, Fiona and Grant (our directors), sat down with the goal of working out what workshop could they offer together as a team that would link Fiona’s background in media, Grant’s ceramics background and their combined interest in animation. The Bazil Grumble Clay Animation Program was born!

As the years have gone by, Bazil Grumble has grown and diversified practices to become Queensland’s leading provider of multi-arts programs.

With delivery across Queensland, Australia and internationally, Bazil Grumble has had opportunities to deliver creative arts experiences to hundreds of thousands of children, young people, adults and seniors and we have been fortunate to work creatively with many organisations, some of which are listed below:
