Your Future First

Following the success of our initial ‘Your Future First’ workshop, the New Year sprang into life with our second session with the group.

Our first workshop saw the staff and young people taking part in a number of entertaining and fun activities getting to know one another before embarking on an engaging and challenging 13 week journey together.

Our second session re-engaged the young people, through games and activities, culminating in the creation of a short film outlining all the good and positive things about themselves and each other. The young people thoroughly enjoyed the light hearted and uplifting session which saw them re-energised and motivated for the remaining weeks ahead.

Thank you for the session at the Pop Factory last week. I really think it was a beneficial session, and all the YP’s really enjoyed it! – The only trouble is, now they don’t want to do “proper” work, and want to do more fun stuff!’  (Staff Quote of the day)

We would like to wish everyone who is involved good luck with the rest of the programme.


Summer SPLASH Workshop

Spectacle Theatre working in partnership with RCT Youth Offending Service.

A group of 8 young people, aged between 8 and 11. What to do?

Well, to begin… bacon butties, games, den building, storytelling, mask making, joke telling;

a brief pause to make their own lunch of handmade pasta and bolognese sauce from scratch.

Followed by… plate spinning, club juggling, duelling diablo’s and the joke booth…

Hari: “What do you call a man with a seagull on his head?”

Everybody: “I don’t know.”

Hari: “Cliff.”

Rounded off with a game of ‘What are you doing?’… then home!

A fun filled day with a great group of young people.

Take a look at these pics:
