For last year's Summer School we co-hosted an exciting Summer School with Tobacco Factory Theatres, inspired by the works of Roald Dahl. In just two weeks 'The Weird World of Barkarkington Academy' was created. Find out more about this Summer School and The Dahl Project here.

Louder Than Words
Louder Than Words is a unique drama group for young people who have additional needs age 7+. Each week young people can have fun, make friends and learn new skills in drama, music, storytelling in a supported and friendly environment with a team of experienced practitioners. Sessions are planned with the individual needs of young people in mind and delivered in a way which supports each group member’s development and participation and plays to their strengths. Each term young people have the opportunity to share what they have learnt and created with their families.
Sessions are free to participants and run Mondays 5-30-6.30 at our studio in Barton Hill Settlement.

“Thank you for putting so much effort into adapting the session to support him he told us about being a cowboy on the way home.” – Parent
