As the head of PSE in Ferndale community school, I have worked with spectacle theatre on many occasions when they have delivered performances and workshops at the school. The performances and workshops have explored the themes of bullying, mental health and wellbeing, and support the work of the school on a needs basis in delivering the curriculum. Spectacle theatre has also been involved in the delivery of E3 provision as well as performing theatre productions in the youth centre based in the school. The young people of the school have always benefited from the workshops and performances and are always highly engaged.

I have worked with spectacle theatre for many years and am impressed with how they bring high quality arts to local communities that challenge perception, ask real questions and ultimately change the actions of individuals so they themselves can make positive steps in their own lives.

Mid Rhondda communities first and spectacle theatre have worked closely for many years (previously as Llwynypia communities first) by supporting local groups in booking performances by spectacle theatre and previously we have bought in a performance called “The Jennifer Vyle Show” which tackled the stigma around mental health within our health themed projects with resounding feedback and success.

I have worked with Spectacle Theatre on many previous occasions including projects such as Big Brother, Your Future First, which have covered aspects of sexual health including exploitation, mental health, emotional resilience, barriers to learning and improving confidence and self-esteem. Through the medium of art and drama, fantastic results have been produced through their unique approach which always puts in the individuals needs first and their ability to be flexible to the needs of those individuals.
