Free Autumn activities for children and young people at Angel Shed
Angel Shed Theatre Company is a children’s theatre company that specialises in ‘inclusive theatre’ meaning children and young people from all backgrounds come together to take part. We have supported Angel Shed for two years, to make free, inclusive, and inspiring activities available over the Summer and Easter holidays.
Angel Shed’s Debs Bourner talks about the activities happening at the theatre this Autumn, and about how you can get involved.
“We deliver imaginative drama, music and movement-based workshops and performances for the community, encouraging children and young people of all abilities to express themselves freely.
We work with 5–16-year-olds, and also Young Creative volunteers aged 16-25. In all our work, we want ensure that each person, regardless of ability and background is given an equal opportunity to participate.
“It really makes my children more confident. Angel Shed has encouraged speaking, teamwork, making friends and collaborating with others”Parent of Angel Shed participant
We specialise in supporting children and young people often excluded from other mainstream activities, including those with learning, emotional, behavioural, physical difficulties and disabilities, those from deprived neighbourhoods (we make free places available each term) and vulnerable home situations. Engaging in our work helps to:
- improve confidence and happiness
- build communication skills and connections with others.
- increase motivation to try new things.
Angel Shed’s Young Creatives
Our Young Creatives project trains volunteers in all aspects of the performing arts and the skills supporting children and young people, some of which are vulnerable in some way. The training will be useful for anyone who wants to:
- work in the performing arts, or has an interest in it
- work with children and young people, including those with additional support needs.”
